Pattaya Redemptorist School for the Blind, Founded 1986
Since the School for the Blind first opened in the mid 1980’s, it has provided blind and visually impaired children with an education that will give them the opportunity to become independent members of society.
The school educates the students following the national curriculum, set by the Ministry of Education, but it must also teach the skills that a blind student must learn, such as learning the read and write using the Braille language system and they also learn to use a white cane so that they can become more independent.
The school educates its students through three years of kindergarten and nine years of junior and secondary education. The students then have the opportunity to complete Grade 10-12 at the Pattaya Redemptorist Vocational School for the Blind which opened in 2013 and also teaches vocational and life skills that will allow the students become more independent.
