SCHOOL HISTORY 

We celebrate learning at Esteban School! 

Esteban School has a history with a long list of accomplishments.  Founded as a kindergarten in 1964 by Eleanor Powell-Esteban, the first school was in the backyard of the residence of Mrs. Esteban, with only 12 preschool students coming from her neighborhood in Parañaque.  From the beginning, ES has offered a range of subjects within an integrated curriculum.  Over the years, ES has built its international reputation in meeting the educational needs not only of the Filipino community, but also to foreign families seeking a rigorous local curriculum with international standards. 

MISSION STATEMENT We at Esteban School shall provide an international perspective to the National Curriculum.  We shall prepare our students and graduates to enter into and excel at any educational system and university in the Philippines or abroad by providing our students with the highest quality education that is holistic, global and dynamic.  Above all, we shall equip our students to be citizens who confidently and positively participate in the complex and rapidly changing world of the 21st century.

    Esteban School has a history with a long list of accomplishments. Founded as a kindergarten in 1964 by Eleanor Powell-Esteban, the first school was in the backyard of the residence of Mrs. Esteban, with only 12 preschool students coming from her neighborhood in Parañaque. From the beginning, ES has offered a range of subjects within an integrated curriculum. Over the years, ES has built its international reputation in meeting the educational needs not only of the Filipino community, but also to foreign families seeking a rigorous local curriculum with international standards.

    Esteban School offers a combination of British, North American and Filipino Education to the Filipino and expatriate community in the Philippines. It has four distinct and closely integrated educational divisions: Early Childhood Education (one and a half year old through Kindergarten); the Primary School (Grade 1 through Grade 5); the Middle School (Grade 6 to Grade 8); and the High School (Grade 9 to Grade 12).

    We have two conveniently located campuses for Early Childhood Education, one in Ayala Alabang and the other in Dasmariñas Village, Makati. Our Primary, Middle and High Schools are located in a lush green haven at the Flame Tree Campus, a part of the Nutrition Center Compound along Pasong Tamo Extension in Taguig.

    The Esteban School has been a member of the European Council of International Schools (ECIS), the oldest and largest association of international schools, since 1997.
