PISD is a basic education institution founded and managed by one of the Philippines’ Top 10 Most Outstanding Principals in 2006, Mrs. Perla Pichon-Kwan. It is a kto12 school offering three basic education levels: Preschool, Grade School and High School.
PISD’s preschool department consists of three levels; playschool (3.1 - 4 y.o), pre-kindergarten (4.1 – 5 y.o.), and kindergarten (5.1 -6 y.o). PISD believes that every learner must be equipped with all the essential skills for holistic development during the first few years of his/her life, otherwise known as the formative years.

PISD provides all its preschool learners a child-friendly, stimulating and safe environment especially designed to maximize their learning while they are having fun. Classrooms are self-contained ensuring that all young learners experience the same activities in accordance with the 21st century skills.
PISD’s Grade School department offers an enriched curriculum with Math and English as its core for all learners from Grades 1 – 6, with ages ranging from 6 – 12 years old.
