The Philippine School - (Private)
The school aptly named The Philippine School intends to fill this local market need. The simple fact that this only existing Filipino school has increased its population significantly this school year, the need for a second institution is a warranted considering this rapid increase may not be sustainable with only one school. Besides, there are numerous Filipino students studying in British and other non-Philippine curriculum schools as well. These children however have to take up an additional year of study (for Filipino and social studies subjects ) to be qualified for Philippine colleges or have to pay an extra fees (bond) by registering as foreign students IN THEIR OWN HOMELAND to avoid the extra subjects.
Other parents choose the British schools for better quality of education since they are left with only one choice for a Philippine syllabus school. TPS hope to convince these parents that our home grown educational system is at par with western institutes. The Philippine School aims to prepare its students to excel as young leaders of tomorrow (global leaders being trained and brought up abroad) offering advanced technology programs, values-based education, parent-friendly policy and activities such as arts and crafts, music, dance and sports. The population growth rate in Dubai is steadily increasing, leading us to anticipate expanding market potential for this area.
The Philippine School will employ a system that is parent-friendly where they can communicate, interact, and share their ideas. The Philippine School will compete well in our market by offering competitive prices, high-quality education, and leading-edge educational programs with certified, college-educated instructors, and by maintaining an excellent reputation with parents and the community we serve. Our mission is to provide an affordable, quality education while developing and nurturing the whole child in a God-centered environment.
The Philippine School is an institution encouraging excellence in academic, social, physical, and spiritual lives of its students, their families, the community, and the world. We envision being a center of Academic Excellence. Train students to become good leaders, globally competitive, foster academic excellence, integrity, compassion and imbued with values in students as they develop to their fullest potential.
