Starfish Country Home School Foundation (SCHSE) envisions quality education and protection that every child needs to achieve future academic and personal success. We are a not-for-profit organization based in Thailand and founded by Dr. Richard P. Haugland in March 2005. The use of Starfish as the name of the school originated from the parable of Loren Eisley, The Star Thrower, signifying the importance of making a difference. We aim to equip students with skills and personal qualities through excellent academic programs, new life experience, and socialization opportunities. Starfish Country Home School Foundation has three branches in Thailand, in Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, and Bangkok, which all encourage students to develop creativity, responsibility, and a concern for others and the environment.
