International Schools in the Philippines - Part 1

International School Manila
Known as the first international school to be accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. IS Manila opened in 1920, during the American occupation of the Philippines, after American and British expatriates sought the establishment of a school that would provide for the long-term educational needs of their children.

For the 2007-2008 school calendar, the tuition rates at IS Manila range from US$6,180 for their Pre-School set to around US$17,000 (for Grades 11-12) annually. The School also charges a one-time matriculation fee of US$2,800, and a special project deposit of $5,000 is required upon enrollment. The latter amount is fully refundable when the student withdraws from the school. Other fees also apply. More Wiki Info

Once known as a Makati landmark with its lovely brick buildings, the old International School Manila campus used to be beside San Miguel Village in Kalayaan avenue. The old campus was eventually torn down to give way to a condominium. The new campus is now located at a very posh and secured location known as The Fort.

  4. At Green Gables, we believe education is a natural ‘give and take’ where we learn as much from children as they from us; that our children transform us as we transform them.
