Rose Marie Academy is a private, internationally-oriented Pre K-12 school situated in Nichada Thani Estate in Pakkret, Nonthaburi, Thailand. It is run under the guidance and supervision of Mrs. Rose Marie Wanchupela, a professional American teacher with over forty years of experience teaching in Thai and international schools.
Rose Marie Academy offers a Child Center Program for children from one and a half to five years of age, which is registered with the Thai Ministry of Social Development and Human Security, and a Primary through Secondary School Program registered with the Thai Ministry of Education.
Most schools have at least twenty in their class but Rose Marie has fewer than twelve which means that the teacher can take care of us more easily than in a big class. If the work is too hard the teacher will change it to be exactly perfect for you.
The music teacher helps and teaches us to play many songs and instruments. We have two bands. Our teacher takes us to many places to pay our songs outside school.
We have a blue sports court for soccer, badminton, basketball, and P.E. We have practice for sports teams. We have a good teacher who helps us to play different kinds of sports. When we started having a soccer team the teacher let us design a logo and shirt which was good. Then we chose which one was best.
The best thing I ever had in this school was when we took our field trip to Northeastern Thailand. Most schools allow grades 5-8 to sleep over just for one field day but ours was more than 5 days. We learned a lot from where we went.
Child Center at Rose Marie Academy provides a nurturing and fun environment with small classrooms and with individual attention. My daughter has truly enjoyed and benefited from her 3 years here.
When your school has over 1000 students, it can be almost impossible for you to personally know every single person in your year, let alone your class. If you ever fall behind in class, or don’t understand something, most or the time the teacher won’t drop everything to help you. This, however, is not the case at Rose Marie Academy. It’s a small school, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad. Small class sizes mean way more attention from your teachers. Not only will they notice if you have any problems but they’ll also have time to help you too. You’ll also find friends more easily, as the smaller classrooms create a warmer, less daunting environment for friendship. Say goodbye to the I’m-always-ignored vibe. Of course, you wot’t know till you try it yourself, so what are you waiting for?
My time at Rose Marie Academy was great and not like other schools that I have attended before. I made many friends and have many good memories of school field trips to other countries – Indonesia, Japan, Myanmar, China and Vietnam The most important thing for me was the high school teachers that were very helpful and paid close attention to me and understood my strengths and weaknesses in all of the subjects that I had to study – math, social studies, English, science and art. Without the help of the high school teachers, I wouldn’t have been able to graduate from Rose Marie Academy and enter the next stage of my life which will be studying at Stamford International University Rama 9 Campus, Creative Media Design. Two other people who I would like to thank are Khun Wanchai and Khun Rose Marie for accepting me to study at Rose Marie Academy. Without Khun Wanchai and Khun Rose Marie I wouldn’t know which school to attend. Also, I would like to thank all of the high school teachers for working with me and understanding my homework and schoolwork.
I was thinking about school a bit. I thought about some of the things I really like and just some general thoughts. I really like how its an international school even though it is small. It’s also interesting working because of how many different ages you work with due to skill tracking.
I like how it has a cozy feeling because everyone is working together. It feels kind of small, but that is just because it is. It has multiple floors tho, so it’s not that bad since we can all manage. There are not many people to become friends with, so your class and people from other classes become your friends. Also, there is a lot of time to become friends with everyone during snack and lunch times.
This is a very international school, but there is still mainly Thai students. The cafeteria makes food for everyone though and they have a lot of variety everyday. There are not many Americans compared to Asians though, so I can see why they make mainly Thai food.
It is interesting to study here because there is a lot of difference in classes because of skill tracking. It makes more variety in the age and level of working. There are also different holidays than the holidays I celebrate like Song Kran.
Everyone works well together here. No one fights when we are doing things like making models in math or when we are playing soccer or basketball. We just try to talk and help each other or ourselves win. It is fun playing in the sports court because I didn’t have anything like that in my old school.
It is very nice being here, and I have a lot of friends and fun in school. I hope that the school stays open for a long time even though I am leaving a year and a half from now. It is fun and the education I get is really good.
I have been thinking about my life in Rose Marie Academy. I have been studying in this school for a year now and I have improved a lot in myself like, I have done very well in my studies and my English speaking.
The education in this school is very good because all the programs are interesting like the English programs. The program helps me to improve a lot in my English. I.C.T. helps me improve my computer and multi-media skills and the math program helps me to have a chance to improve my mathematics skills.
The sports and the Physical Education class help me to improve my fitness and soccer is one of my favorite sports in this school, also basketball and badminton.
The school is very safe and very convenient for travel. In this school we have a very big difference to my previous school because the teacher in that school did not give much attention to me but the teachers in this school give a lot of attention to me and it has helped me a lot with my school work.
I really like it here at Rose Marie Academy. It has different kind of atmosphere compared to other schools. There are no strict teachers and no loads of homework. Most of the lessons (especially the specials) are quite enjoyable. Even though Rose Marie Academy has a small campus, I enjoy this school.
The education here is different. There is a winder range of learning. Along with this variety, this school also teaches useful skills. The teachers aren’t strict, and the lessons are fun. I also like the class meeting, which I didn’t get at my old school. Skill tracking makes this school different too.
Somehow, this school has a jolly bright atmosphere. In Rose Marie Academy, there is less stress, probably due to the bully free environment and reduced strictness. Everyone seems to be happy.
The schedule is really convenient since I don’t mind waking up an hour earlier. The lockers make it easier for me to organize things. The food is better than most schools I have been to. However, I really like the long breaks which allow students time to eat and play.
Rose Marie Academy is a small school where students, teachers, and school personnel have a close relationship in a warm and friendly atmosphere. The school’s distinctive features are that they have highly-experienced teachers who are experts in taking good care of students’ individual needs and enabling them to learn to the best of their ability at their own pace. The most impressive aspect is that every student is given close attention.
Our son, Kip, graduated high school today from Rose Marie Academy. When we first came to Thailand, we were very concerned that Kip was going to have a challenge finding a school here. A nearby school was not a good fit for him. Then we discovered Rose Marie Academy.
Our first impression of Rose Marie Academy was one of a happy, welcoming atmosphere.
Khun Rose Marie, the Academic Director, and Khun Wanchai, the school counselor, made a good team explaining the school’s program. The school allows students to work at their own pace and ability. This was a big advantage for our son.
The teaching staff all worked to help Kip get to this day. The core teachers spent a lot of time helping Kip and making sure he kept up with the program. We are very appreciative of their efforts and dedication in enabling him to graduate.
Jay’s time at Rose Marie Academy has been extremely wonderful. There is no doubt that he has received the attention and support he needed to develop his skills further and to further achieve. Jay has spent 12 years in this school and it has proved that Jay has perfectly fitted into the school environment.
He has gained and developed many attributes in both academic and non-academic subjects. Moreover, the teachers have always been watching over him and making sure that Jay is going on the right path. Teacher Rose Marie and Khun Wanchai have given Jay tremendous motivation to never give up and teacher May has always given Jay full support. Also, Teacher Kala, Teacher Colin, Teacher Hasan, Teacher Maxine and Teacher Alyson are the few names we have given that have never stopped supporting Jay in his time in this school. Also, Teacher Finola who showed Jay what he is capable of doing.
We definitely made the right decision by placing Jay in this school. Finally, we are thankful for the support from all the faculty. This place truly feels like home.

The year 2006 was a very important year for our lives, my wife and I were looking for a school for our son where he could get a complete education, all under one roof.
We moved around all over Bangkok, but we did not feel satisfied. However, our search ended when we learned about Rose Marie Academy. When we saw the school, we fell fully satisfied, and we feel that had we found what we were looking for. As a businessman, I travel around the world, and I have seen parents who are very much worried and concerned about their child’s education as it is really very difficult to get the right place to fit the needs of our children.
As a father whose son attends the Rose Marie Academy, I want to advise you that this school is a wonderful place for our child and for your child, too. The atmosphere in this school is very welcoming which makes it a place very convenient for learning. As a matter of fact, there are small classes that allow teachers to give more personal attention to each student with this, surely, students are behaved, and they are properly guided. Indeed, the design of their curriculum is fashioned to the unique needs of each student. Feel free to inquire and talk to the teachers.
Our son has attended Child Center at Rose Marie Academy for almost three years (C2 – C4). We think that this school is a wonderful place for every child. It was a right decision that we chose this school for our son. Before, our son really did not like to go to school, but after joining C2 at Child Center, Rose Marie Academy, he continually developed to be an active person and happy to participate in any school activity. Not only does he enjoy going to school, he also learns a lot at the same time. He has developed to be more confident, and his English skill has improved significantly. At C4, the academic curriculum is well-prepared and suitable for both English writing and mathematics in order to be ready for primary school. The teachers at Rose Marie Academy are highly experienced and give close attention to individual children so that they can develop at their own pace.
Lastly, we are grateful for Rose Marie Academy for taking great care of our son, for all your hard work and effort. Learning from a good teacher is an experience that sometimes can be more profound than the curriculum itself. We believe that a small school with a big heart like Rose Marie Academy is the best choice.
Since our daughter started attending Rose Marie Academy, her academic learning and confidence have greatly improved, and she has become much more independent. She enjoys going to school and is unhappy when she has to miss a day.
Your hard work is much appreciated.
We had a chance to join Sports Day 2015. I would like to say thank you for the nice activity. From the heart, nothing to say more than the word “happy” because I am happy to see that my child is happy here.
Rose Marie Academy, for me, is a “home”. Unlike others, I spent my whole life at this school. I started from Kindergarten all the way up to high school, and graduated in 2014. It’s a small school filled with lots of warmth. Everyone is like part of a family – students, teachers, and staff. Everyone knew each other. I was very happy studying there. The school meant a lot to me. Leaving Rose Marie Academy was like leaving my home. Teachers welcomed all kinds of students, and they helped me get past rough times in my life. Not just in school, but my life problems as well. Thank you.
Rose Marie Academy offers a warm, inviting atmosphere where their professional, dedicated, and compassionate staff create an optimal setting for learning. Their skill track programs are designed to address the children’s individual development, while they work closely with the teaching team as well as families. My husband and I cannot thank you enough for everyone’s dedication to AJ. We spent so many years to find a better “School” for AJ. Here, Rose Marie Academy, filled with professionals that believe in AJ and will challenge him to reach his potential. This is the place where AJ was confident and celebrated for who he is Thank you so much to all the fantastic teams.
I love to learn at Rose Marie Academy. Rose Marie Academy has many subjects and may friends. Rose Marie Academy makes me better in English, Spelling, Grammar, and Math. Rose Marie Academy has a big football field outside of a dining hall. I play everyday after lunch. The classrooms in Rose Marie Academy are big. They can contain a lot of students. Rose Marie Academy has three floors. The first floor is special subjects, second is for Primary School and Junior High School, and third is for the Senior High School.
Rose Marie Academy school uniform is very good because it is different from other schools, like a polo shirt and long pants, and another is P.E. uniform which has a shirt with the Rose Marie Academy logo in the middle.
I like learning in Rose Marie Academy in Junior High School because the subjects are hard and learning hard helps me to do the easy ones.
Thank you all for your help during our daughter’s time at Rose Marie Academy. After leaving RMA her grades in high school in Toronto were all A and A+, and she received scholarship offers from every university to which she applied. She has amazed herself and us. I cannot tell you how grateful we are to you for the help received during her first three years of high school and for providing the excellent foundation she needed to excel.
