SCENE CITY | Preschoolers graduate while parents swell with joy and pride

In tiny caps and gowns, parents watched their once-upon-a-time toddlers march up the stage as Stockbridge American International School held its culminating program with the theme, “Step Right Up to a Wonderful Ride!” marking a very important event in the school calendar, celebrated last May 30, 2018 at Abreeza Mall Event Center. 

Stockbridge students anticipate their Recognition and Moving Up Day because in their eyes, it means they are no longer “little ones” but “big” boys and girls. All of the students, even babies as young as six months, old took part in this momentous event as each one is recognized for his or her unique character. Moving Up can be life changing. The simple marker helps to tie different parts of life together with a common remembrance. A graduation during the formative years of the preschool may not be remembered in their young minds, but forever etched in the foundation of a confident child.  It is not just an end; it is a new beginning–the start of a new chapter in every child’s life.

Simultaneous with the graduation was the announcement of the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) membership of Stockbridge International School. This was formally announced by VP for Operations, Ms. Careen L. Hao Bian. This puts the Stockbridge preschool program at par with any international school across the globe as it is the same curriculum used by over 140 nurseries and early year settings, in 47 countries worldwide.

Stockbridge American International School is the first and only American International School in Davao and in Mindanao offering DepEd recognized curriculum and following American state standards. The new Stockbridge American International School is located at Bugac, Maa Road, Davao City.
