1st Decade: Beginning of MWIT

1990

On August 28, 1990, the President of Mahidol University (Professor Natth

Bhamarapravati M.D.) and Director of General Education, Ministry of Education (Kowit Vorapiphat, Ph.D.) signed a Memorandum of Understanding between the two organizations to establish a high school area on the campus of Mahidol University in Salaya, Phutthamonthon, Nakhon Pathom.

Mahidol Wittayanusorn School was established as the first science high 

school in Thailand under the cooperation of the Department of General Education, and Mahidol University to develop talented students with a specialization in science and technology in hopes that the school would become an essential step for higher education and accelerate the development of Thailand’s knowledge in science and technology.

Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn named the school “Mahidol Wittayanusorn” as a memorial to HRH Prince Mahidol of Songkla for his numerous contributions to academic advancement.

1991

The school was opened in 1991 with the first batch of students selected from grade 9 students from provinces all over Thailand. During that time,

Phra Upali Kunupamacarya (Panya Indapanyo), the abbot of Wat Rai Khing, Sam Phran District, Nakhon Pathom, granted permission to use Wat Rai Khing’s meditation area as temporary buildings and dormitories for students, as the construction of facilities in Salaya were still underway. In the beginning, MWIT faced many difficulties, including a lack of teachers, teaching instruments, and school budget, but with great support provided by Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, the school successfully overcame these initial obstacles.

Mahidol University provided academic support by sending undergraduate students to help tutor MWIT students in chemistry, biology, and physics during the first semester. Moreover, scientists and specialists involved in related fields were invited to give lectures on scientific methods of inquiry and ethics. There was also a supplementary English course by native speakers which focussed on building up MWIT students’ speaking and listening skills.

On January 31, 1994, Her Royal Highness Maha Chakri Sirindhorn paid a 

royal visit to Mahidol Wittayanusorn School at Wat Rai Khing meditation area, Sam Phran District, Nakhon Pathom, and while touring the school attended exhibitions of students’ academic research projects.

On August 30, 1994, Her Royal Highness Maha Chakri Sirindhorn paid a royal visit to lay the foundation stone of Mahidol Wittayanusorn School buildings at Salaya, Phutthamonthon District, Nakhon Pathom, and to provide Thai musical instruments for teaching and academic activities.

The curriculum covered all of the content of the Ministry of Education’s Basic Education Curriculum, with additions of advanced courses in science, mathematics, technology, and English. Students may select the preferred elective subjects of their interests, developing and enhancing each individual’s potential. Before graduation, students are required to do at least one science project. There were also various learner development activities inside and outside of school to possess desired characteristics proposed by the curriculum.
