The opening of the new school for Filipinos “The Philippine School” (TPS) in Dubai marked SY 2008-2009.
The increase was noted especially in Dubai where there was only one Philippine curriculum school. The investors, who were also parents, decided to establish another Filipino school with the help of a local sponsor.
The school, aptly named The Philippine School, intends to fill the needs of the local market. The 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 Philippine School employs a system that is parent-friendly, allowing communication, interaction and sharing of ideas. It competes well in the 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 it serves.
The TPS envisions to be a center of academic excellence, training students to become good leaders, who are globally competitive, and imbued with integrity, compassion and values as they develop to their fullest potential.
The TPS’ mission is to provide an affordable, quality education while developing and nurturing the whole child in a God-centered environment. It is an institution encouraging excellence in the academic, social, physical and spiritual lives of its students and their families, the community, and the world.
As a school, TPS focuses on teaching. It works to equip its management, faculty and staff with a strong sense of values, while keeping them abreast with technology-based, advance-teaching methodology.
