Through this site, we are happy to introduce to you our school dedicated to quality basic education.

We are located in Marikina, beside the Marikina Hotel, and by deliberate choice, we are a small school with current over-all teacher-to-student ratio of 1:7.5 .

We are of the belief that quality basic education happens one student at a time.

We started in the year 2000, and once the pre-school program was set, we added one grade level at a time. Because almost from the start we began using the Singapore curriculum in Math and Science and, with adaptations, in English, our transition into the K-12 curriculum has been smooth.

In every possible way, our school is centered on the student—from the very design and construction of the buildings to our curriculum, policies, practices, and other programs.

Because the school, from its conception, has been a personal mission, we are hands-on not only in the goal-setting but also in the day-to-day running of the school by which goals are met.

Through the articles and pictures of this website, we hope to share with you our thinking and execution of the goal of quality basic education in the Philippines today. (Also, click our Facebook accounts: “Ingenium School Marikinaand “Ingenium School Marikina-PreSchool”).
