The Primary Section is where most children get their first experience of "real school" and a taste of what is expected from them in the years to come. VCS believes that the secret of a successful and happy school (not to mention adult) life starts with learning how to learn, this being critical not only in the academic field but in the way we later interact with friends and colleagues in everyday life.

Thus we focus on the development of learning skills, languages and the practical use of technology as it applies to research and problem solving. These are complimented by a strong grounding in the moral, spiritual and social skills that, combined with a good education and enquiring mind, help to make the rounded personality we want for our children. Last but not least, VCS emphasises and promotes the virtues of pride and tradition in all aspects of Thai citizenship.

Three distinct programmes are available at the Primary level, depending on ability of the student and their parent’s longer term educational goals. Details can be found here.

Common to all programmes is a project based learning approach in which the students are encouraged to plan learning activities with their teacher and suggest subjects they are interested in studying. The teacher then devises a series of tasks and activities to help them investigate the topic and where possible integrates them with the national curriculum, often spanning several subject lessons in the process.

In addition, Varee Chiangmai International School has devised its own learning model called BEST where

The "BEST" concept was acknowledged as a noteworthy objective statement by the Thai National Education Bureau in 2007.

Languages are taught using the Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) framework in which a foreign language is used as a tool in the learning of a non-language subject. For example, the teaching of science or history in English allows the development of both subjects at once in an interesting and stimulating forum where students find improvement of their language skills comes naturally.
