Dear Parents,

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Chiang Mai Montessori International School. I am very happy that you are considering the path of Montessori education for your child, and I feel honoured and privileged that you put your faith and trust in CMMIS, myself and my team. We look forward to working with you as we take this journey together, and I hope you will enjoy growing, developing and learning not only as parents, but as a whole family within the CMMIS community.

CMMIS is, and always will be, a family centred school. I built it because of my love of children and my joy of working with them, to offer Chiang Mai families the choice of a Montessori education, and to give something back to the community which raised me and instilled a sense of mission and a passion to go my own way. My vision for CMMIS is a consistently achieving, Northern Thai Montessori school, recognised for its academic excellence, and for it’s involved parent community.

I am confident that CMMIS can one day fulfil its potential of taking its place among very best learning establishments in South East Asia. Without you, a school like would not be possible, so on behalf myself and of all of us at CMMIS, thank you very much for your support!
