Children learn best when learning is
meaningful and non-threatening.

PWC Basic Education

Continuing the JASMS Tradition

The PWC Basic Education believes in the education philosophy of Doreen Barber-Gamboa, the founder of JASMS education. Her educational philosophy empowers children to explore their environment and to learn from one another. It is learning by doing to cultivate simultaneously a spirit of independence and a capacity for cooperation.

The pedagogy aims to equip your children by developing the child’s attitude, behavior and relationships as they grow into personhood.  The school also enriches the kinds of motivation and depth of wisdom they acquire as they grow into maturity.  It is this balanced and strong values formation that will mold children into becoming well-rounded persons prepared for life’s challenges.


7 Pillars of JASMS Education

1. Learning by doing
2. Living through active participation
3. Discovering self initiative
4. Self confidence for responsible adulthood
5. Leadership through early career formation
6. Citizenship through self reliance
7. Creativity for self determination
