Teaching Skill


  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.
