We always want the best for our child, so as parents, their education and development is one of the things that we secure as we prepare them for their future. Part of this preparation is selecting the best institution that will hone their skills and prepare them on their future endeavors.
Considering an institution that will help your child grow his/her potential is something that most parents consider since this will be the foundation of their child's education. A lot of factors are being considered by parents nowadays, so aside from quality education, location, the safety of their child, method of teaching and price.
With all this being said, all parents just wanted to have their kids a better education for them to have a better future. and this is also the goal of Eton International School.
Sitting at the heart of Manila and right at the country’s cradle of arts and culture, the Eton International School rises as the first world-class learning institution inside the prestigious grounds of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP).
Eton International School-CCP stands proudly amongst landmark structures — the Folk Arts Theatre in its north, the Coconut Palace on the east and bordered in the south by the Manila Bay, world-renowned for its spectacular sunrise and glorious sunsets.
“ETON is the school of the future where learning happens beyond the four walls of the classrooms. It is a place where kids will feel safe to learn, grow and multiply their talents exponentially. What sets ETON apart is how we nurture the leadership potential in each child. Our mantra is every child is a leader and every child can be a hero waiting to be unleashed. We take time out to know about the child’s strength and weaknesses so that we can match our teaching style to our students’ learning style. This allows the students to learn, faster, better and higher.
Eton International family culture allows students to grow and create better relationships in their family and community. It only takes love to break all barriers in the mind, heart, and soul. With our multiple local and international programs, each child is given the chance to find his gifts, strengthen their resiliency and build their confidence,” said Ms. Jacqueline Marzan-Tolentino, Eton International School Directress.
Tolentino further explained that the Eton school philosophy is that “Every child is born with Royal Dignity.”
“We believe the gifts and calling of each child are irrevocable. A child’s worth is built in. It is our mission to open their mind to possibilities, strengthen their competency and skills and inculcate values that will set them for life,” she adds.
Eton’s motto is Artes (Heart), Scientia (Mind) and Intelligentia (Will or Spirit).
“Every child is nurtured to inspire, to innovate and to lead a life in honor of God and service to humanity. Every Etonian leads with humility, courage, and heart,” Tolentino said.Eton prides itself of its small class size that allows them to focus on the development of each child’s multiple intelligence, especially in the crucial foundation years. Tolentino describes this as strengthening their roots to allow the children to be resilient as they grow and bloom and ready to conquer the world.
