“My favorite thing about SON is that the school brings people together. I never imagined my graduating class could be so united, as we grew and supported each other.”
School of the Nations was established in Macau in 1988 by local residents and with the support of the government.
Our cherished aim since that time has been to provide a space in which students can flourish—intellectually, morally and spiritually—and contribute to the wellbeing of the wider community.
Academic rigour and cultivating a spirit of service have been features of our educational approach since the school’s inception.
Educating Heart and Mind
Our vision of early childhood, childhood, early adolescence, and adolescence informs our approach to the intellectual and moral development of students.
We are inspired by a set of teachings that attach great importance to the role of education in promoting individual and social progress.
“From the tangible learning spaces to the intangible teachers’ approach, the feeling is more of a gentle, inclusive and powerful guidance, guiding students to explore their own abilities and talents, and to serve the community and society.”

“Our two children have enough time to complete their homework while still being able to participate in extracurricular activities. Because of the curriculum design and the pedagogical approach of SON, our children have been able to find new hobbies and enjoy their childhoods in addition to their studies.”

“The School of the Nations believes that while our material existence is very important, and that science and learning have brought about great changes to our societies, the success or failure of these endeavors will ultimately be determined by our understanding and refinement of the spiritual qualities we all inherently possess.”
