CMIS teaches our students both Thai national history and geography with lessons including the kingdom’s chronologies, important cities and historical figures as well as the kingdom’s constitutional monarchy.
Each student is assigned to do research on their interest then present their findings to their friends. The process requires multiple skills and discipline such as technology, art, creative thinking as well as appreciation for Thai history.
The lessons emphasize key historical events and the understanding of constitutional monarchy.
