International School is the first and only institution among the top schools in
Metro Manila and in the Philippines to provide a unique international
educational program that enables students to learn more with a less stressful,
yet engaging and challenging experience. Serving families for over 13 years, Reedley
has ensured that apart from being at par with international standards, it
provides a nurturing learning environment to its students, thus producing happy
and well-rounded individuals. Reedley is currently a Candidate for
Accreditation to be awarded by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges
(WASC)-USA and a Regular Member of the Council of International Schools

kids. Its small class sizes guarantee that learners are able to fully grasp the
lessons taught by their teachers. Unlike most schools which only measure how
smart or dumb a child is, Reedley acts as a roadmap and mentor that nurtures
each student to reach his or her goals through after-school review sessions,
customized academic and non-academic action plans and one-on-one parent chats.
Annually, 85% of Reedley graduates pass the Top 5 local universities
(University of the Philippines, Ateneo, De La Salle, University of Asia and the
Pacific, and University of Santo Tomas) and foreign colleges such as University
of San Francisco, USA, Northwood University in Michigan, USA, Purdue
University, Limkokwing University in Malaysia, and Singapore School of
Management to name a few.

the pioneers of anti-bullying school programs in the country. Through the
years, the school has effectively launched activities through its annual Bully

drafting a house bill on anti-bullying policies for schools.

study skills, time management, and conflict resolution in its curriculum.
