Schools consist of a complex web of human interactions and relationships.   

Good schools place the wellbeing, safety, and quality of teaching and learning for all their students at the forefront of these relationships.

Thus, at International School Manila (ISM), we care deeply about building a vibrant and enterprising learning community where all our students are challenged and engaged. To support our students, ISM has developed a sophisticated set of structures and systems, but at the heart of these practices is caring for each child’s needs.

ISM is a learning community that cares about:

  • The social and emotional needs of every child
  • The quality of teaching and learning
  • Sustaining and safeguarding our environment
  • Making a difference in the lives of our community
  • Celebrating our international diversity by recognizing and including differences.

Moving to a new country can be a stressful and anxious experience, but I am very confident that ISM can make both you and your child feel totally immersed in a community that cares for the whole child and is able to foster and grow the unique qualities that your family will bring to our learning community.

These pages on our website give you a snapshot of what life can be like at International School Manila. There are a tremendous number of opportunities where students learn to make the best of themselves as young people growing up in an ever more complex global world. We would be happy to talk with you further and to show you around our outstanding, world-class facility.

I have two sons who entered ISM in grades two and four, graduating in 2016 and 2018. As a parent, I can wholeheartedly vouch for the care, dedication, and attention to detail that the ISM community afforded my children’s education. I witnessed the ignition of curiosity and intrigue as well as establishing a work ethic and drive to push themselves as hard as possible within their chosen academics, athletics, and activities. It is this foundational experience that has contributed to their global outlook on life, and I believe that more than most schools, ISM is able to achieve this success for all of its students.

I hope you find this website informative. If there is anything else we can tell you, we shall be delighted to help.
