Maple Leaf Educational Philosophy


The Maple Leaf Educational Philosophy is based on the belief that through blending the best of the innovative and enquiry-based western educational model with the culturally rich and disciplined traditional Chinese educational model, students will be best prepared to meet the challenges of living and working in an internationally diverse society.

The Maple Leaf Educational Philosophy assumes that every child has a strong desire to learn and to develop an understanding of the world, to share their knowledge, and to communicate their understanding, thoughts and feelings through wide ranging personal expression.

MLES schools provide an international education that emphasizes academic excellence within a supportive community that respects and promotes cultural norms and traditions for both Chinese and international students.

MLES schools promote appreciation for the diversity of people and cultures, provide an optimal environment for learning and teaching, and offer a globally respected curriculum that inspires in its students the spirit and ideals of global citizenship.

MLES schools measure success by the extent to which they guide each student in the exploration of their interests, assist them in the accomplishment of their goals and promote a sense of self-fulfillment and pride. At Maple Leaf, we endeavor to create a diverse, dynamic, and engaging learning environment where students feel safe, supported, and empowered to fully develop their abilities, interests and creative talents.

At MLES we work to develop top students and provide opportunities that prepare them for their future academic endeavors.
