Abstract: The objective of this study was to enrich the literature of perceptions of quality schools derived from the findings of key stakeholders identified as parents. Data was gathered through qualitative methods using interviews and focus groups with Thai parents in Bangkok. The findings present the six most important dimensions of a quality school: trained and qualified teachers, strong academics, co-curricular activities, discipline and moral values, infrastructure and facilities and safe, nurturing and warm environment. The findings add to the ever-growing literature on school quality around the world. The implications are discussed in terms of their implications for school administrators and policy makers.
