Bangkok Patana School


Besides Economics and SL Spanish lessons, the middle of the week signals additional Theory of Knowledge (TOK) classes. Here, Ledoit and his peers sit down to plan out their 1,600-word research essay as well as an oral presentation on a topic of their choice.

“No man is an island here,” he says. “Patana encourages us to always help our friends — we’re like a family.” The school’s large Secondary Library, filled with the latest computers, plush armchairs, and dedicated study rooms, serves as their refuge.

Later, Ledoit steps out of his comfort zone and onto the field. He’s part of Patana’s track team, and has completed the bronze, silver, and gold Duke of Edinburgh (DOE) awards. The avid sailor — both leisurely and competitively — occasionally gets sent to train at a sailing club in Pattaya, which is two hours from Bangkok, too.
