What makes our school different?

It is a common question we are faced with when speaking to prospective parents, visiting the school for the first time, "What makes your school different from others in Manila?”

Whilst we boast some real world-class collaborations to provide unique opportunities and experiences for our students, every lesson in school is important.  We see excellent learning taking place in all our classrooms from teachers taking different approaches to teaching to support the children’s individual needs.

I had a really interesting school tour with a prospective parent earlier this week. As a teacher herself, she commented on how happy the children were and that the engagement levels of the students were incredible. She smiled and told me she was going to ask the standard question of what makes your school stand apart from others but clearly she could see a difference from other schools she had visited.  

She said that in all her years of teaching she had not witnessed the sort of engagement levels that our students showed. “How can you do that?” she asked. Stopping to look at a class working in the theatre, we watched for a short time. I  replied: simply that  " At NAIS Manila, we teach children to doubt, to think, to communicate, to learn from their mistakes and most importantly have fun in their learning."

Our fantastic team of teachers are highly qualified and experienced professionals who always strive for the success of our students. Due to our wonderful resources, professional development opportunities, and close-knit community here at NAIS Manila, we have a low turnover of staff which supports consistency in the students learning.  Everyone is approachable and welcoming, forging great relationships with both students and parents.

So ‘What else makes our school different? ‘ Our fantastic teachers.
