School Philosophy

At EIS we are committed to educate generations of children who will develop and use their talents to create a sense of curiosity, tolerance, a sense of belonging and to contribute to their diverse communities. These children will grow to become shining stars in adulthood.

Eastlands International School believes that the British style education influences the international school experience of uniquely diverse groups within the school community.
