The Best of Both Worlds

What makes NAIS Manila unique is a question that many prospective parents ask when they tour our school and meet with our Admissions Team. While there is a myriad of answers to this - everything from our approach to inclusivity and fostering positive attitudes to learning, to our House System and teacher-student relationships - however the most succinct response is that NAIS Manila offers “the best of both worlds”.

NAIS Manila on the one hand has all the amazing benefits of being a smaller, community-oriented school in which all teachers know all students, and a personalised approach to learning takes place in a meaningful way. Our approach to inclusion and personalised learning is what really makes our Secondary School such a special place and it was excellent to be recognised for this at the most recent International School Awards in which we were one of three finalist schools in the Initiative to Support Inclusion Category for our unique Pathways Programme.

On the other hand, being a part of the Nord Anglia Education family means our students can collaborate with tens of thousands of students from around the world through the exclusive Global Campus platform as well as work with world-renowned organisations such as UNICEF, MIT and Juilliard, on a daily basis. The opportunities extended to NAIS Manila students when it comes to global interaction are second to none.

This coming July we have several students participating in a week-long event jointly run by NAE and UNICEF that will see the students meet and work with various UN officials and share their ideas for how to build a better tomorrow. This past year has also seen students work with their international peers in our regional and global STEAM Festivals, in Performing Arts events with students from our family of schools led by the amazing Juilliard School and participate in a wealth of Global Campus competitions and collaborative events with students from the Americas to Europe and everywhere in between.


There is no doubt that there are certain things larger schools offer that a school of our size cannot, such as a bigger field or perhaps a larger theatre space. But while there are some things bigger schools may have that we do not, where NAIS Manila stands out and offers what no one else can is in offering the best of both worlds.

We are community-oriented and a student-first school that is a leader in approaches to inclusivity here in Manila. We pride ourselves on our personalised approaches to teaching and learning and in ensuring all students can achieve the success that they deserve. Our students also can interact and collaborate with tens of thousands of students globally, be exposed to new ideas, be challenged academically, and be provided platforms to share their ideas of how to make a better world. Our students get to have the great parts of being a small school side-by-side with the amazing opportunities of being part of a global family. We truly, offer the best of both worlds.
