Lower Primary (Grades 1-3)
Change, continuity and interdependence are social phenomena that also mirrors every child’s transition, albeit slow, from identity of self to community.
Children dive into their family history and celebrate what makes each family different and the same. Then the curriculum shifts to the story of Keys – its origin, beginnings, purpose, growth and challenges. Next, it extends to the study of commerce and trade in Mandaluyong and the Pasig River with its historic waterway that connects all Metro Manila cities.
Children create projects that reflect their understanding of migration across time periods. They also look into the pre-colonial life in the Philippines and discover Filipino men and women of great courage.
The long ago and far away are made real and relevant. Children learn the who, the whys and hows of every history-making exploration. Each milestone always builds on lessons learned from the risks and passions, heroes and villains, success and failures of other explorers.
Upper Primary (Grades 4-6)
An in-depth study of major socio-political ideologies, systems of economy, religious beliefs and cultural practices give a balance worldview. A unit on world religions portrays man’s pursuit for peace and tolerance in a world beset by poverty, war, bigotry and discrimination. They examine the triggers and tools of colonialism and its enduring effects on modern-day Filipinos. They learn the roots of democracy and its collective impact on nation building.
