To foster the holistic development of students and their multiple intelligences, through meaningful learning and a culture of respect, to enable them to be leaders in the 21st century and global citizens who will use thier intelligences to make a difference.


We envision an educational institution where...
1. All students are intelligent in their own unique ways.
2. All students should be given opportunities to use their intelligences to make a difference
3. All students should be assessed in intelligence-fair ways
4. All students should be given opportunities to solve real-world problems
5. All students have to be taught for understanding
6. All students should learn and develop their personal intelligences in a culture of respect
7. All students learn through their different intelligences
8. All students should show competence in the different intelligences


The Multiple Intelligence International School  & Child's Place Preschool was set up in 1996 with the vision of providing learning environments that are truly child-centered. It aimed to open schools that welcome all learners, recognize and understand the individual differences among children, & work with the learner in bringing out their potentials. 

The Child's Place preschool and the M.I. International School are the first learning institutions in the country that base their approach on the principles of the multiple intelligence framework of Dr. Howard Gardner, a well-renowned cognitive psychologist from Harvard University.  The MI approach, which is currently being implemented in the US and other countries and backed by recent research on how children learn, is truly responsive to the needs of the 21st Century. This framework prepares the Filipino child to be creative, critical, and divergent thinkers who are able to really 'think outside the box.' In our schools, we recognize that by teaching for understanding, our students are encouraged to problem-solve, to hone their skills, and to develop their individual strengths.  All these are qualities that will allow students to ride the tide of the Information Age.  Since we understand that every child learns in many ways and each has his own interests and needs, we provide children with multiple access or entry points to a concept through their different intelligences or “smarts.” We also do our best not only to provide a holistic curriculum but also to practice “differentiated teaching” inside our classrooms because we understand the differences in interests, needs, and learning styles among the learners.

         It is now more than a dozen years since the Multiple Intelligence International School was launched; congratulations on your thriving enterprise over that period. I had the privilege of visiting the school a few years ago and was impressed by the energy, motivation, and thoughtfulness exhibited by students, staff, and parents. Of the many "MI schools" that I have visited over the years, the Manila-based school stands out in terms of the care with which the program has been conceptualized and carried through. I am in regular touch with Founding Director Joy Abaquin and recently had the opportunity in New York to watch her interact with two dozen MI educators from all over the world. All attendees were appropriately impressed by Joy's deep understanding of the key ideas of MI and her boundless energy in leading the school and producing future leaders for the Philippines and the world. I send you my warmest greetings and best wishes for many more years as a successful, pioneering educational institution.
