Equipping Students With Self-Knowledge and Real World Skills

We offer a full-time personalized learning program for children ages 9 - 15.  Our definition of school is grounded in self-directed learning and real world skills.  We are the answer for those looking for an update in education.  Our FAQ page will help you understand us better 

How we differ from most schools

Planning the Day

Each student has a planning diary/board and the first thing they do every morning is plan what they will achieve during the day.    

Mentor Meetings

These are  scheduled individual meetings between the mentor (teacher) and  each student to discuss where they are: academically, creatively and personally.  Our ratio is 8 students to a mentor.  The mentor is the child's guide in school just like the parents at home. 

Parent-Teacher Partnership

We believe that parents know their children the best so we make sure to learn as much as we can from them. As an education institution, we want to continue the journey of education that you have started at home.  

Teachers as Coaches

The role of a teacher here is that of a coach.  We work alongside our students, get to know them individually and coach them to their full potential.  We work as a cohesive team to ensure that every student is being heard.  

Intrinsic Discipline

Like our learning, we believe that self and group discipline should happen as a result of being motivated intrinsically.  To encourage that, every rule is discussed 'democratically'. Students participate in outlining rules and boundaries.  

Assessment for Learning & Exam Prep

Assessment for learning is done  through formative assessment tools.  For English and Math, we use the IXL continuous diagnostic system that monitors and helps students progress with a personalised learning plan.  We also prepare students for standardised exams in line with their goal.

Melvin (Mel) received a BA in Broadcasting from the 

University of Central Oklahoma.

What he has learned from his 13 years as an Executive Producer with one of the leading commercial production houses in Thailand, is that “no idea is a bad idea ; it is how you present it that makes it great!” but absolutely “having no idea, is... a bad idea.”

Also being that he is a fitness enthusiast; his motivating and inspiring attitude will definitely rub off on you to begin your own journey towards living a healthy, balanced, and happy life.
