Default International Schools teaching

Hi,

I am wondering if there are any teachers currently working in international schools in Thailand that would be able to recommend their employer? I am keen to work in SE Asia but am in a great school here on the UK - concerned that the change of culture will be enough to deal with initially without complications of a dodgy school!
Know some schools are amazing at marketing but not so great at living up to the hype...

Any help/suggestions of where to apply would be appreciated. Am posting this in 'Singapore' and 'Malaysia' forums as well...very open to where to go!

The first thing I would want to know would be if it was a real international school offering IGCSEs or SATs ect, rather than an English program . A lot of so called international schools in Thailand don't have any kind of standardized testing that would be recognized in other countries .
The salary range should give it away . Crap schools offer crap salaries. Real schools get real teachers and pay the real wages needed to get people like yourself from the West.
I would have thought BKK would have the most places to get work.

I haven't worked at these places, but I've heard from others that Headstart Phuket and British International School Phuket are both good employers.
