Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Everest Academy Manila is a Catholic International School present in over 20 countries worldwide implementing the method of Integral Formation for boys and girls from kindergarten to twelfth grade.

Research has proven that brain development differs between boys and girls which becomes significant when they are between 9 and 12 years old. Everest offers gender specific education in a co-ed campus starting in fourth grade.. Both boys and girls learn the same things, so the curriculum does not change. What happens is that teaching adjusts to the preference, needs, motivation and, above all, the learning styles of each gender. For example, boys are generally stimulated by developing skills under pressure and time limits with winners and losers. Girls on the other hand generally prefer teamwork where nobody wins and nobody loses.

Teaching approach of the school

Everest gives a lot of personal attention in its teaching approach and has a lot of student- centered activities. Everest does not focus on memorization but teach its students how to think, how to ask critical questions and how to assimilate and apply their knowledge. These are some of the characteristics that are also used by schools denominated as progressive. To achieve academic excellence and development of the whole person Everest also has characteristics that are not typically found in progressive schools. Everest requires order in the classrooms with set routines and structures. Everest also actively imparts respect for authority, obedience, structure and all the other values and virtues to all students. Everest combines the best elements of both the progressive and traditional approach, which makes the school very unique in the Philippines, to develop in all students the intellectual ability to understand and form a personal opinion on the challenges of our time.
