Ms. Irene Suganda, Parent of Callista Madeline
Clean facilities and friendly staffs were our initial considerations to enroll Maddie to ISMILE. She was1.5 years old, joining the Mom-toddler class which then helped me to know more about the school. Teachers know students by names, including their non-direct students. Teachers treat the students as individuals rather than a group as each kid has different characters, challenges, and needs. Most importantly, they are highly committed to what they are doing, reachable, and responsive. These confirmed our decision enrolling Maddie to ISMILE.
Maddie had ups and downs at the beginning. In toddler class, she was independent and confident. However, when entering N1, she became reserved. She was crying and did not want to let go in the first week. Thanks to the teachers’ patience and commitment, Maddie had bloomed into a happy student who loves singing, dancing, and art by the end of N1. Now at N2, she would lead the way excitedly to her class and could not wait to join the class. The very keyword that I anticipate hearing from Maddie when I ask her daily: “How’s school today?” She would reply: “FUN!” Then I know Maddie is in the right hands.
