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."
