In the modern, increasingly interdependent and complex world, an international education is an absolute necessity – a balanced education, teaching not only to the mind, but also to the heart. It is vital to begin such an international experience from early childhood. At Wells International School and Kindergarten, we understand the importance of such a learning experience. We believe that, while each child is unique, there are qualities that each will need in order to join global society. All students need to learn respect for themselves as well as others, attain open-mindedness and tolerance, and acquire the ability to take responsibility for their actions. We try to promote such qualities by providing a truly international education, helping each child attain a multi-cultural perspective while encouraging each to appreciate his or her own unique cultural background. Constantly striving for academic excellence, we encourage students to become life-long learners by helping them develop necessary attitudes and skills, ensuring their success in the global international community of tomorrow.
In the fall of 1998, the Wells International Kindergarten (formerly EverClever Kindergarten) welcomed its first students on Sukhumvit Soi 47. As the school grew with children joining from the surrounding community, plans were already in the making for a primary school campus at nearby Sukhumvit Soi 51. In 2003, the Wells International School – Thong Lor Campus accepted its first students, ranging from grades 1 to 5, and expanding to grade 6 the following year. In 2005, construction began on a secondary school about 5 kilometers down Sukhumvit Road, and in the fall of 2006, the Wells International School – On Nut Campus opened to grades 1 to 9. Starting with just 4 kindergarten students back in 1998, the Wells community has grown to a current enrollment of over 750.
It saw off its first graduating class in June of 2010, as the graduates moved on to prestigious universities in the United States, Europe, Asia and Australia. The 2011-2012 school year heralded major changes, as Wells International Kindergarten at Phrom Phong closed its doors, moving to the Thong Lor campus, and the new Bang Na campus opened for kindergarten students on Srinakarin 62. In the fall of 2012, the On Nut campus laid the groundwork for a massive expansion project, projected to be completed for the 2015-2016 school year. The eight-story building will include additional classrooms, a new secondary library, a large auditorium with balcony seating, and a rooftop greenhouse.

Wells students are also encouraged to actively contribute to a number of annual charity and philanthropic projects ranging from visits to local orphanages to volunteering at reforestation efforts.
