Principal’s Welcome Message

” I have no regrets and if I had nine lives, I would have gladly them all up for my country” 

These were the words of Melchora Aquino de Ramos, the Grand Woman of the Philippine, from whom Melchora Aquino Elementary School was named after. 

These are the words the Aquinian Mentors live by as we provide global standard education to children from 5 to 11 years of age, honing them to become holistic learners, developing in them not only 21st Century skills, but strong moral values as well, as the School prepares these young minds to become productive citizens of the country.

Inspired by Tandang Sora’s indomitable and selfless spirit, Teachers of Melchora Aquino Elementary School are cognizant of our responsibility to carry on with our missions – prepare our learners for a brighter future through the development of life skills and attitudes.

Humbled by the limitations of the circumstances being a small school in the 2nd District of Manila, The Aquinian Administrators, Mentors, Parents and other stakeholders commit ourselves to serve the learners, exhausting our efforts and abilities, the best way we know how.

Driven by the Department of Education’s Vision, Mission and Goals, and the School’s Division Office’s mantra, “Quality First, where excellence is a lifestyle. . . . ” We dedicate ourselves to achieve the desired improvements in the teaching – learning outcomes, motivated by our passion to excel in our endeavors and undertakings.

We autograph our work with excellence.
