Eton International School in CCP

In a recent event that I attended, Eton International School shared their learning style. Some mommy bloggers and I took an #MyLearningStyle assessment, a test that ETON use to their students to determine if we are an analytical or global type of person. Accordingly, analytical person usually or most of the time have goals or objectives, things need to be done the way they want it, they usually have checklists. Analytical are perfectionist and organized, they like working in cold temperature and can finish a work in one sitting.

While global are relax, can easily adopt to different environment, creative, artistic, talented, can multitask or do things at a time especially for millennials. While most of the guests are analytical, I was happy to found out the result  saying that I'm both analytical and global๐Ÿ˜Š. And I agree with that because there are "qualities" that I can be analytical and sometimes global type of person. Analytical because as a Mom I always want and make sure that everything is organized. Global that I can multitask and talented in a way that I can play a guitar,yay!!!๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

Manila Bay sunset Cruise
Eton International School
Eton International School-CCP stands proudly amongst landmark structures—the Folk Arts Theatre in its north, the Coconut Palace on the east and bordered in the south by the Manila Bay, world-renowned for its spectacular sunrise and glorious sunsets.

The second assessment or exercise we had determined as of what type of leader are we by answering two questions;
1 if you are a formal or informal kind of person;
2 if you are dominant or goes with a flow kind of person.
The answer will determine if you are a Controller, Supporter, Promoter or Analytic type of leaders.

Formal + Dominant  = Controller
Informal + Dominant = Supporter 
Formal+ Goes with the flow = Promoter 
Informal + Goes with the Flow = Analytic

Accordingly, a Controller person is someone who wants things done on their way while Supporter is relax-person, he or she does things with a heart. Promoter are sociable while Analytic are detailed-oriented person. It is an interesting, interacting and  fun afternoon assessment and I learn a lot. You too can try to assess yourself or someone in mind in the second exercise.

It made me realize that knowing as what type of person you are, you will understand that people have different personalities and this will help you on how you can deal and communicate with others. And this kind of assessment is being used in ETON to determine if the child is analytical or global so that they can customized a special learning program, teaching styles and needs to support each of their students.

Ms. Jacqueline Marzan-Tolentino, Eton International School Directress.

ETON is the school of the future where learning happens beyond the four walls of the classrooms. It is a place where kids will feel safe to learn, grow and multiply their talents exponentially,” said Ms. Jacqueline Marzan-Tolentino, Eton International School Directress.

“What sets ETON apart is how we nurture the leadership potential in each child. Our mantra is every child is a leader and every child can be a hero waiting to be unleashed. We take time out to know about the child’s strength and weaknesses so that we can match our teaching style to our students’ learning style. This allows the students to learn, faster, better and higher. Eton International family culture allows students to grow and create better relationships in their family and community. It only takes love to break all barriers in the mind, heart and soul. With our multiple local and international programs, each child is given the chance to find his gifts, strengthen their resiliency and build their confidence,” Tolentino adds.

Eton’s motto is Artes (Heart), Scientia (Mind) and Intelligentia(Will or Spirit).

Tolentino further explained that the Eton school philosophy is that “Every child is born with Royal Dignity. We believe the gifts and calling of each child is irrevocable. A child’s worth is built in. It is our mission to open their mind to possibilities, strengthen their competency and skills and inculcate values that will set them for life,” she adds.

ETON has created three pioneering programs—the Center for the Talented and Gifted for the pre-schoolers; Center for Leadership and Performing Arts for grade school and Center for Technology and Innovation for high school.

“Every child is nurtured to inspire, to innovate and to lead a life in honor of God and service to humanity. Every Etonian leads with humility, courage and heart,” Tolentino said.

Eton prides itself of its small class size that allows them to focus on the development of each child’s multiple intelligence especially in the crucial foundation years. Tolentino describes this as strengthening their roots to allow the children to be resilient as they grow and bloom and ready to conquer the world.
