The EdTechTeam Philippines Summit featuring Google for Education to be held at the International School Manila in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig, Philippines on September 20 & 21, 2014. The International School Manila (ISM) was founded in 1920 as the American School, but officially changed its name in 1970 to reflect its diverse student population. Today, ISM has approximately 2,200 students representing 72 countries.  In February 2008, it became the first overseas school to receive dual accreditation from the Council of International Schools and the US-based Western Association of Schools and Colleges. The curriculum at ISM is under constant review to ensure that it reflects best practices from around the world.  In Elementary School, learning is inquiry-based and challenges the students to be creative, independent thinkers.  In the Middle and High Schools, the program is subject-based and culminates in courses leading to the IB Diploma.  

The Philippines, an archipelago of approximately 7,107 islands, plays host to an exchange of cultures and ideas handed down through the generations. The mixed Asian heritage blended with a Spanish and American colonial past lends the Filipino culture a varied and rich history. From remote indigenous tribes to the modern urban intellectuals, Filipinos reflect the warmth and vitality of the islands in their smiles and hospitality.

Fort Bonifacio Global City, where ISM is located, is the new hub of business and leisure in Metro Manila. It is a young, vibrant city—with centers for dining, shopping, and entertainment set amidst soaring residential and business establishments, landscaped parks and open spaces. “The Fort” is centrally located, within easy access of nearby cities like Makati and Ortigas via train, taxi, bus or private vehicle.
