I've been blown away by the quality of teaching and professionalism during an extremely challenging time for schools in Manila.

Across the barriers of race, religion and tradition children come together and interact in a way unique to them. It is the place where raw materials are molded into global citizens. Every class may accommodate around 12 nationalities learning and playing together. My grandchild is also studying here and the amenities and facilities are excellent. Extra-curricular activities are given due importance for the development of multi-talented personality.

Very good school. Safety, cleanliness, respect, teamwork by the management to the base employee. Children learn to socialize and become independent at an early age. The interaction between school and parents is incredible. Experiment. You'll never want to leave.

Sports Programs are Fragmented & Impossible to Follow changing every 6 weeks or so plus web sites are scattered and difficult to draw proper info. The management are also poor communicators and defensive. The Education component is exceptional and I give it 5 stars.
