Harrell Horne Integrated School Cavite
Last night, I once again researched online for nearby schools here in Cavite. I am reading reviews of schools at a forum and Harrell Horne Integrated School was mentioned, it got me interested because they are using a non-traditional way of teaching.
They are using the Reggio Emilia, and based on what I have read, this approach is quite suitable for my son’s needs.

- Preparatory to Grade1 should be at least 5-5 1/2 years old by June
They told me that they accept kids with special needs as long as the parents are cooperative with the school administration and if the kid is manageable and doesn’t hurt any one.
Things I like with this school:
- The rooms are spacious and if you are like me who want your kid to just socialize and not focus much on worksheets and academic, the set-up of this school looks promising.
- The comfort rooms are inside the classroom and boys and girls CR are separated
- They have a spacious play ground that kids can use for free if there is a birthday party
- They have a swimming pool.
- The parents waiting area are kubo (nipa hut) and its cozy.
- The surroundings are green
- Since my son as of now can’t understand Tagalog, they told me that they are using English as a medium to communicate
- They have Elementary to High School classes (he is already 6 years old this August and I don’t like to transfer him from one school to another)
- They assured me that my son will not be bullied in class
- I can’t tell if the tuition fee is worth it, but compared to other schools nearby I think it is not that high.
Things I don’t like with this school:
- The number of students per class. They have 4 preschool classrooms, and they accept 20-25 students per class. Although there is 1 teacher and 1 teacher aide per class, I think the number is still too many. The ideal number per class that I am looking for is just 10-15, but unfortunately, there are no schools here that I know that offer that kind of number per class.
My son had his admission exam this morning, and I am glad he cooperated and answered most of the questions that the examiner asked him.
Admission Exam Fee is P350.00
