• A Message from the Founder

    Finally, after 50 years I see the mission being accomplished.  The emergence of the new man who will no longer be the victim of events. His clarity of vision with the Montessori system will enable him to mold and shape the future of mankind as evidenced by our alumni all over the world.  They are the new Filipinos: vibrant, eloquent, happy and prosperous..

    So, what do I foresee for the next 10 years?  We will have to propagate it more to those who are disadvantaged.  We will continue to pilot with the public school the Montessori system to awaken the full potential of our countrymen.  We will ignite a model of a new curriculum for the 21st century where our young people will learn to learn, learn to earn and learn to live in harmony with everyone.

    God’s grace has always accompanied us from the rented houses all over Manila reaching out to the old mansion in Angeles, Pampanga and then sharing it with the Ifugaos down to the aetas of Palan, San Marcelino in Zambales and all over Luzon and the teaching laboratory schools of Tacloban and Mati in Davao and Cadiz in Negros.

    I wish my teachers, my administrative personnel to go on because there is still much to be done. The task is a gift from heaven and God has showered us with strength, courage and joy. 

    Thank you to all the parents, all our alumni, all the communities, government people and journalists who have worked with us.  I especially thank my husband Max who without fail has helped establish our school and fulfill our mission and now my daughter Sara Francesca.  

    Our grandchildren, the grandchildren of our alumni will continue to develop the new Filipino. 

    We believe in our country.  We believe in the God given virtues of love for work and love for peace that it may spread to the rest of the continent of Asia.     

    God bless you all.
