Frequency Asked Questions
What makes Manorom International Christian School unique among other international schools?
At MICS, we offer Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.) curriculum which is an individualized and mastery-based learning where the student is placed at the level where they can perform and progress through their own pace. Student will be assessed and evaluated whether they master the concept before they move on to the next chapter of the subject. Not only academic reinforcement that MICS provides through A.C.E. curriculum and other subjects and activities, student gets to learn 90 character traits throughout the curriculum that is based on the Word of God (Bible). We believe that this experience at MICS will help prepare them to be a future leader that can make a difference in their lives and their community.

How much homework is assigned?
We believe in assigning homework not as "busy work", but rather as a means of reinforcing concepts, building connections and practicing skills. Students are trained to set the reasonable goal and to complete their goals every day. Most of the student who can complete their daily goal will likely not have homework. If the supervisor sees student’s weakness in specific subject, a supervisor will provide enough work to challenge students and help them master the concept, while still allowing time for extra-curricular activities. Additional details are available in the parent handbooks.
