About ONE

Established in 2011 as a preschool, ONE (Oriental NEgros) International School was so named not only for its location, but also for its vision. ONE signifies a unity of purpose, and exemplifies how the school and its attending families feel as they work together towards ONE goal, that of maximising our child(ren)’s potential in both academic and personal fields to enable them in becoming educated, independent and flexible adults in today’s fast moving, globalised society.

To achieve this goal takes a community, and the school enables this by working as ONE with its local and international friends and partners in both the academic and business fields to further enhance its contribution and curricula. Our name also embodies our school motto, ‘Every Child Matters and Every Moment Counts’ as we work hard to apply this belief to every single ONE of our pupils.

Why ONE?

For all the reasons outlined in other areas of the website – from the tropical, ocean adjacent location and fantastic facilities to the small classes and qualified, native English-speaking teachers, there is a unique educational opportunity available here.

Alongside the above – amenities, high teacher : student ratios and resources – we also have diverse student and teacher populations; enabling a truly international education by providing the potential to make friends from around the world.

Our support for children and families for whom English is a second language is what enables this international cohort. We not only place children in appropriate classes, but we also provide ESL classes to help students to engage as fully as possible in the academic curriculum and social opportunities available to them. This clear commitment to inclusion extends to all our families as we believe that close parent and school partnerships are the key to quality educational provision.
