  1. Why did you choose Middleton?

We had an excellent first impression during the school visit and were enthusiastic about the curriculum that integrates MOE Maths and Mandarin. My son, Alessandro, has shown great interest in learning Mandarin since his kindergarten years and is happy that he would be able to continue with it. We could feel that all the teachers and staff are experienced and passionate about education.   Middleton International School is an excellent education choice, at a fair cost, providing a solution to many foreigners who cannot afford the high fees of other International Schools.

  1. What are your thoughts on the facilities?

We never considered facilities as a critical factor to evaluate a school. In our home country, Italy, school facilities are unfortunately inadequate, but the quality of education is not affected and still ranks quite well. Having been an educator myself, I always believe that A place is only as good as the people you know in it. It is the people that make the place, not the infrastructure, and the people at MIS are outstanding.

  1. What do you like most about Middleton?

We love the fact that MIS, having started in less than a year, encompasses a vibrant community where children, parents and teachers actively participate, discuss and share their experiences. As a family, we are happy with the extremely positive environment our child is immersed in. Every single day, my Alessandro goes to school with a smile. That is for me as a parent the most important thing and proof that MIS has been the best choice for our family.

Mother of Isabella Lodey Primary 3 (9 years)

From our very first visit, the school felt more like a family; there are community and camaraderie among the teachers, the staff, and the parents; unlike anything we have ever personally experienced.

The class sizes are manageable, the children are happy, and our daughter loves attending the school. When it comes to our children, their needs will always come first, and with Middleton, we found a better standard of education, great staff and our daughter is the happiest she has ever been. I would go as far to say it is the best school she has ever attended. Overall, the lower fees are a bonus, but we are thrilled and would recommend Middleton to any parents considering a new environment for their children.

I think Middleton has the perfect blend of facilities required for the educational needs of the students. Our daughter’s educational needs are more of a requirement than whether the school has its swimming pool.

  1. Why did you choose Middleton?

Fees are one of the factors that we had to consider. Since other international schools were costly, we were looking for affordable options and even considered another international school whose fees were lower than that of Middleton. However, Middleton won our hearts with its wonderfully warm parent liaison team. We were very well looked after by the staff who attended to all our questions and concerns with care and attention.

The second consideration was the continuity of the school. Middleton is part of the EtonHouse group. We, therefore, feel very comfortable to send our child to Middleton.

  1. What are your thoughts on the facilities?

Facilities are good but not that important. Singapore is very accessible and has a lot of extracurricular activities available; this can be mitigated even though it might require more effort by the family.

  1. What do you like most about Middleton?

Middleton provides regular updates, even daily on what the children are pursuing in school, what has been done and also feedback on the child’s progress. Children are more involved in the class showing their creativity, and the teachers encourage the children to bring out their talent and skills.

 

Emma Stratford, British
Mother of 2 children at MIS

As soon as I walked into Middleton and saw the smiles of the children and staff, I knew we were in the right place.  The principal was very assuring, and I just knew I wanted to be a part of this school.

My two children have been here over a year now, and the standard of education we have experienced has been excellent. Singapore’s education system is renowned, and I am happy that MIS offers Singapore Maths and Chinese. Furthermore, because MIS follows the IPC, my children pick up skills and knowledge that are transferable, and they can fit back to the UK education system if we return to the UK.

At MIS, we celebrate many different cultural festivals; the boys have made so many friends from all over the world and tasted the food they would never have back at home. The school has opened their eyes to the world.
