On changing schools

I’ve read somewhere that changing schools can be a wrenching social and emotional experience for students. I can not relate on this as I have not experienced changing schools during my childhood. However, I have no objection that this can be true. Of course, it will obviously affect anyone experiencing “separation” maybe it be changing schools or moving to a new home.

Unfortunately, my girls are changing school again this school year, with valid reasons definitely. Let’s just say they didn’t meet my expectations, as promised during the time when we enrolled. I don’t want to elaborate anymore but learning that majority of the teachers have also left the school explains well.

In Derelle’s case, this is going to be her 4th school since she started schooling, while Erchelle is 3rd. Not a good move but I am hoping that this would be the last. If only I discovered the current school early last year before we relocated to Subic, I would have enrolled them there. But because we were new and the previous was recommended to me, I didn’t think twice.

Before the school year has ended, I already knew that we were transferring and I am thankful that my husband has always been supportive when I make decisions like this. I have also been giving hints to the girls that they are changing school again with the reasons that a kid would easily understand and grasp. I am glad that they had no objection and even showed excitement and cooperation about the idea. Gaining new friends was one of the reasons that convinced them easily.

This year, they are going to College of Subic Montessori – Zambales.

Crossing my fingers… I am hoping that we will finally settle for this.

  1. Changing schools can be difficult not only sa mga kids but on the parents as well. You have to put in a bit of extra effort especially sa pag aadjust talaga. But I guess later on, masasanay na din kayo, eventually magiging ok din ang lahat. Good luck to your girls sa new school nila! 🙂

  2. The school looks good cuz and montessori naman sya so I’m sure okay dyan.
    Enjoy your first day of school Deye and Erchelle, new environment, new friends.
    Ako din before the last school year ended, I had to scout for schools nearby. Excited much for our little girl Nix…But then they all said it would be too early for her to go to school this year. At least I have one more year to prepare…Tuition fees and all…

  3. My family is planning to relocate back to Zambales where I grew up (Olongapo – San Felipe area) so we could take care of my aeging mother who is living alone in our house in San Felipe.
    So far, based on some research, Subic Montessori SBMA seems to be promising. Can you please provide us an update as to how the school provides quality education? My sons are incoming grades 4 and 5 this June (2017) (former students in a private school in QC) and I wonder how much are the tuition fees and if they have payment schemes? Sorry for asking a lot of questions. I hope you could help us. Please drop me an email to zamora.IBM@gmail.com. Thank you.
