Our elementary level follows the Progressive Education Method. We also use the Singapore Math Curriculum.

The Progressive Education’s main objective is to educate the "whole child" (physical, emotional and intellectual)

• Emphasis on learning by doing (experiential learning)
• Integrated curriculum focused on thematic units
• Strong emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking
• Group work and development of social skills
• Collaborative and cooperative learning projects
• Education for social responsibility and democracy
• Integration of community service and service learning projects into the daily curriculum
• Selection of subject content by looking forward to ask what skills will be needed in future society
• De-emphasis on textbooks in favor of varied learning resources
• Emphasis on life-long learning and social skills

Singapore Math

The world’s leading Math Curriculum is here!


Singapore Math is the generic name of the math curriculum used in Singapore schools. This is now used by leading progressive schools in Manila.

Singapore's math curriculum gained worldwide recognition when Singapore was ranked first in math in the Third International Mathematics & Science Study (TIMMS) in 1995 & 1999.

Singapore Math is geared towards producing mathematical thinkers. It teaches them to think through the different steps of a problem rather than trying to plug it into a formula.

Mental Math is taught from the very beginning & becomes second nature throughout the program.

Story problems are no longer something to fear because math makes sense!

What makes Singapore Math such a strong curriculum?

1. Singapore Math emphasizes the development of strong number sense, excellent mental-math skills, and a deep understanding of place value.

2. The curriculum is based on a progression from concrete experience—using manipulatives—to a pictorial stage and finally to the abstract level or algorithm. This sequence gives students a solid understanding of basic mathematical concepts and relationships before they start working at the abstract level.

3. Singapore Math includes a strong emphasis on model drawing, a visual approach to solving word problems that helps students organize information and solve problems in a step-by-step manner.

4. The Singapore approach focuses on developing students who are problem solvers.

Make sense out of math!
