Our family is so grateful that we chose APDM for our eldest child, Gian. APDM has helped our child gain confidence, improve and develop good study habits and be mature. APDM is like a big family that promotes love, care and being sensitive to the needs of its students. From its head, Mr. Archie David, the principal Ms. Nina Almeda, the teachers, and all the staff members – they are all trained to be warm in giving their service to the children of APDM. I admire APDM’s commitment of bringin not only good education, but also the most sincere care for our children, which is very important to the parents like us. Truly, our family will continue to pray for the continuous growth of APDM.
It feels so good to hear her tell us about her day and how much she enjoys in school.

The first day of school is usually anticipated with a mixture of excitement, curiosity and fear. With our daughter Nieve, she had a successful first day – as she went on to her Nursery classroom, she smiled and there were no tears. To our surprise, the successful first day was short-lived. The first couple of weeks in APDM were challenging for our daughter who struggled with separation anxiety. Nieve went from crying, screaming up to the point of begging not to go to school anymore. I had several discussions with T. Rox as to how we should handle the situation. We are truly grateful, as T. Rox has gone out of her way to make Nieve feel comfortable and was extremely patient as we looked at all possible ways we could help Nieve. After a rough beginning and dealing with separation anxiety, our daughter Nieve has now developed into a confident and sociable preschooler. We started seeing positive changes in her behavior in school. This was demonstrated when she had her performance on stage during the Foundation Day, and other school activities. We are amazed at how much Nieve has grown both academically and emotionally since she started at APDM. It is evident that the school taught her to refine her motor skills, to recognize numbers and letters, and to write her name. We appreciate that the school provides activities such as the Community Integration Project, which encourages our kids to engage, question and analyze the world around them. We’ve also noticed how much she has progressed emotionally. Her social and communication skills have improved immensely. It feels so good to hear her tell us about her day and how much she enjoys in school. The things our daughter has learned in such a short period of time in APDM is truly remarkable.
Watching our son grow in wisdom and of good character, I sincerely give my appreciation to the wonderful faculty members who have patiently cultivated and guided my son in building his foundation.

We chose Academia Progresiva De Manila not only because of convenience, but essentially because of its philosophy. As one of the pioneer families, we gave our full trust to the school and its principles in ensuring holistic approach in educating our son. The course may have not been easy, it was even more constraining on the part of the teachers, but I have witnessed that the events did not hamper their dedication, rather, bolstered their motivation in progressive education. Watching our son grow in wisdom and of good character, I sincerely give my appreciation to the wonderful faculty members who have patiently cultivated and guided my son in building his foundation. We are also grateful for the keen and dynamic leadership exhibited by the school administrator, and the resilience and support given by the head of the school. As a parting message, a quote made by a great philosopher, “We are what we repeatedly do,” and we are a growing community with excellence not just an act but a habit, that we will continually do. Hail, APDM!
I’m a hands-on mom and I have noticed the positive changes with him, his attitude and actions, the way he speaks, his new knowledge, how he enjoys every school activity.

We came to know Academia Progresiva De Manila (APDM) through their promotional tarpaulin ad posted near our street. We decided to enroll our son Zirjan because of the school’s tagline “APDM: Preparing your child for life.” APDM promotes being responsible individuals through the help of school teachers and the | administrative staff. During the school orientation, I was encouraged and challenged with the APDM’s teaching principle, “learning while having fun.” This was really fit and ideal for my child. It’s been nine (9) months now since my child started; I’m glad and surprised with what my son has learned so far. I’m a hands-on mom and I have noticed the positive changes with him, his attitude and actions, the way he speaks, his new knowledge, how he enjoys every school activity. As a mom, I appreciate how the programs and activities offered by APDM are valuable and functional. I can say that our experience with this institution is fulfilling, which makes me confident to recommended it to others. I’m looking forward for more learning techniques from APDM that would be beneficial to our children and help nurture and prepare them to be responsible future leaders. Thank
you and keep it up, APDM!
We are happy with the way APDM approaches education-personal and practical.

Nurturing a child’s self-esteem or feeling of self-worth lays the foundation for every child’s future as she sets out to try new things on her own. As parents, it is our goal to ensure that our child develops confidence to handle life’s challenges. This seems to be a heavy responsibility on our part but thanks to APDM, we found a partner who can help us achieve this goal. Our child’s self-esteem has flourished in APDM. Despite her temperaments and difficulties during her preparatory year, all the people in APDM, from the teachers, aides, guards, and admin staff, love and accept her as she is. This is a school with a big heart for everyone especially for the students. She is now in Grade 1 and can easily talk with her classmates, even develops friendships with them. She can now lead the prayer from her heart without hesitation. She participates in the games during their P.E. and is always excited to participate in presentations during school activities. She has literally bloomed from being shy into a more friendly and confident girl. We are happy with the way APDM approaches education-personal and practical. APDM does not only teach their students how to excel in academics, they encourage them to be creative and help develop life skills such as responsibility and resiliency. Florence still has a long way to go. We know she is unique and talented just like her other classmates. We appreciate the thrusts that the school wants to inculcate to their students. Most of all, we are grateful for helping us bring out the best in her. As the School Year 2015 – 2016 ends, I would like to say congratulations and kudos to APDM for a job well done!
