Why Choose BIS?
Benedictine International School formerly Benedictine Abbey School of Quezon City is a co-ed international school that was founded in June 2000.
The Department of Education has granted the Preschool, Elementary, Junior and Senior High School the recognition to operate.
At present, students of varied cultures constitute the student body.
BIS was established on the philosophy that relevant education is a product of adaptation to the demands of the time and the corresponding new approaches that can be applied in the delivery of such education.
It believes in the enrichment of core competencies and values of the system of education, the utilization of modern trends in class management, the methodology and delivery of subject matter that often spell the success of innovative and relevant education.
As a School that Learns, BIS utilizes the tools and habits of Systems Thinking which is attributed to Peter Senge, MIT Senior Lecturer, Author, and Founding Chair – Society for Organizational Learning (SOL). He says “Systems Thinking integrates the various parts of the system in a way that maximizes organizational effectiveness… The discipline of systems thinking provides a different way of looking at problems and goals not as isolated events but as components of larger structures.”
BIS, therefore, emphasizes the value and agency of human beings, individually and collectively, and generally prefers a balance between critical thinking and emotional stability.
“BIS envisions being an active prime mover in the delivery of quality and practical education with information technology, social entrepreneurship, and emotional intelligence as its main thrusts.
In effect, BIS brings out the total person who is capable of positive changes in the Philippines and in the world community.”
BIS commits to develop 21st century learners equipped with the 5 Cs:
Dedication to the choices one makes, desired future, and life-long learning
Understanding of the nature of systems thru critical thinking and the utilization of the necessary tools and habits
The awareness of self in others, which translates to empathy and stewardship of nature
