Important Updates at Keys

This time of year can be particularly bittersweet. For many students, the end of the school year marks the beginning of summer vacation, a time to relax, recharge, and perhaps even explore new interests and hobbies. For others, it's a time to prepare for the next school year, with new challenges and opportunities on the horizon. 

As the school year comes to a close, here's what you can expect these next months at Keys.

Admissions School Tours:

We understand that choosing the right school for your child is an important decision, and we believe that in-person tours are an essential part of that process. Over the past few weeks, we brought back physical school tours for families who are interested in enrolling their children in our school. These on-site tours give families the opportunity to explore our facilities, meet our faculty and staff, observe our classrooms and speak to students to learn more about our academic programs.

If you are interested in scheduling a tour, please contact our admissions office at 0917-167-5397 or admissions@keys.edu.ph. We look forward to welcoming you to Keys School and showing you all that we have to offer.

Internships and Lab School Visits:

Keys School Manila recently hosted interns and teacher visitors as part of our commitment to providing valuable learning opportunities for aspiring educators. The teachers, who came from local universities, were able to gain hands-on experience in a real-world educational setting and learn from our experienced teachers and staff.

During their time with us, the interns had the opportunity to observe classes, assist with lesson planning and preparation, and work with students in small group settings. They were able to apply their theoretical knowledge in a practical setting and develop their skills in a supportive and collaborative environment.

We are proud to have played a role in helping to develop the next generation of educators, and we look forward to continuing to offer internship opportunities in the future. Our commitment to excellence in education extends not only to our own students but to aspiring educators in the wider community.

Summer Programs:

We are excited to announce the summer program offerings at Keys School Manila! Our summer programs provide a unique opportunity for students to continue their learning and explore new areas of interest in a fun and engaging way. This year, we are offering a wide range of programs that cater to different age groups and interests.

All of our summer programs are designed and facilitated by our experienced teachers and staff, and are held in accordance with current health and safety guidelines. We invite all students to join us this summer and take advantage of the unique learning opportunities that our programs offer.

For more information on our summer programs and to register, kindly follow our social media accounts. We look forward to seeing you this summer!

Face-to-Face SY 2023-24:

The decision to go back to five times face-to-face classes is based on a number of factors, but ultimately, it is to provide students with a more comprehensive educational experience.

The next school year offers a great opportunity for us to reimagine and embrace new teaching and learning methods that have emerged from the pandemic. Teachers will combine learning strategies of face-to-face learning and integrate the purposeful use of technology through different blended learning models either both in whole-group and small-groups settings. 

As we close out another school year and look forward to summer vacation and the next school year, let's take a moment to celebrate all that has been accomplished, and to set our sights on the future with optimism and enthusiasm. With hard work, dedication, and a willingness to learn and grow, anything is possible.
