Eurocampus is worldwide a unique project, including two schools from 2 different countries on a compound of 20.000 sqm. The compound is in Better Living Subdivision, Paranaque, a relatively unpolluted area in a quiet, green environment.
The schools operate solely within their national curriculum. However, there is cooperation in extra curricular activities, staffing, use of buildings and maintenance. Daily hours vary for the different grades, with Kindergarten and preschool ending by 12.10 p.m. and classes ending by 13.05 p.m., 14.30 p.m. or 15.20 p.m. respectively. The school year begins in August and ends in June. The holidays during the school year are around Christmas, February and Easter.
Eurocampus has been founded 1992. Both the French School Manila, an Embassy school, and the German School Manila (José-Rizal-Schule Manila), recognized by the Philippine Government through the Department of Education, Sports and Culture since 1983, were desperately looking for a new location for their schools. Out of this necessity, the idea of the Eurocampus was born. This need and the advantage of a common compound have been main points in considering a joint venture. Implementing this idea became a great success.
Each School has its own curriculum that follows closely which is offered in France or in Germany.
In addition to normal school classes the Eurocampus offers many extra-curricular activities, where students from different nations work together. These activities take place during the afternoon while the children can enjoy the generous facilities of the campus like the two swimming pools, sports field, gymnasium or auditorium.
All schools share most of the facilities like the faculty rooms, sports facilities, science labs and equipment, rooms for computer science, library, and canteen. The classrooms, however, are all designed for each class of each particular school. The French as well as the German school employ qualified teachers and staff from their homelands. The different schools on the Eurocampus ensure the students the same quality of education as back in their home countries. Our experience shows, that our students transfer to schools in Germany, Switzerland or France without any significant problems. Our report cards and final examinations have the same value as in their respective homelands.
