How did Domuschola start?

Second Mom Child Care Preschool started in 2000 with 28 preschool students.  The school doubled its population on its second year and has maintained an average of 100 students starting from its fourth year of operation.  Due to the strong clamor of the preschool parents, grade school was offered in 2006 under the name Domuschola Internationational School.  Domuschola is a merger of two latin words, “Domus” which is “home” and “Schola” or “School”.  True to its belief, the name emphasizes the strong collaboration between home and school, the two worlds of the growing student.

In order to provide its students the best practices in education, the school applied for international accreditation to implement the IB-PYP in 2008.  The International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) is a non-profit educational foundation based in Geneva Switzerland.  In 2011, Domuschola International School (DIS) became an IB World School and the second PYP school in the Philippines.  With its IB authorization, DIS made IB education accessible to more children.  Finally, in 2012 DIS marked another milestone by opening its Secondary Department.
