Message from your Executive Director:

Welcome Back! Our member schools are ready to educate our children during this school year full of challenges and uncertainties.

Thank you to parents and guardians for their confidence in and exercising to choose our schools for their children.

Our school leaders have worked diligently and tirelessly to ensure that our children are safe in their respective learning environments. Their dedication and efforts are commendable. Our students and families are well-served by all who work in our schools. Thank you!

MFIS is actively involved in the planning and adjusting the school plans with the Government since the start of the pandemic. We are pleased to be working with other stakeholders as an essential education partner to represent our member schools.

I wish everyone a meaningful learning year during this ambivalent time!

All the best,

Teresita Chiarella, B.A., M.Ed.
