MEES International School

By Weekender Editor

“A child’s spontaneity and wonder are things to treasure for as long as they last; for the greatest minds, they last a lifetime.”

MEES teaching approach has its roots in educational philosophies such as the Reggio Emilia approach and the Montessori method, which is grounded in the idea that children are native learners who can learn faster and with more engagement when given the freedom to choose what to learn. They believe that students have the right to take ownership over their own learning as they engage with fundamental questions.

The school nurtures students to become continuous learners who are not afraid of challenges, are versatile, and will embrace new technological developments.

The elementary program, exclusive to their Hakusan location, offers Project-based-learning, a student-centered, dynamic pedagogical approach that provides opportunities for students to acquire in-depth knowledge by actively exploring real-world challenges. Teachers facilitate learning and encourage exploration and discovery. As they learn through this innovative method, children develop key 21st-century skills.
