The impact of this language choice, Virtual School not online/distance learning, has been huge and our community engagement surveys testify to this. See results below;
100% of parents feel their child is making good academic progress
100% of students feel they are making good progress
94% of parents rate the NAIS MANILA Virtual School Experience 5/5 Stars
100% rate it 4 stars or above
Our continued wellbeing surveying of students also shows our students to be consistently happy and engaged in their learning. Contrast this with recent survey results coming out the UK suggesting that students are on average achieving only 70% of the progress they had in previous years. While some academic progress has been inevitably stalled due to the challenges of lockdown, our approach to Virtual School and providing a holistic schooling experience has paid dividends in maintaining positive approaches to learning and sustained academic progress.
Schools are more than just the day-to-day lessons taught, and as a result, Virtual School must be more than just learning at a distance. I am very proud of and thankful for the continued efforts of all NAIS MANILA secondary teachers, students and of course parents. Together, an incredible Virtual School Experience has been created and our students will continue to benefit now and into the future.
