  • Accept and respect each child in all their diversity

Queen of Martyrs School implements its philosophy through various educational modes and techniques, such as self-contained classes, departmental classes, small group programs, individualized programs, physical education classes, the family life program and support groups for individual concerns.  Our commitment is to academic excellence in conjunction with the parents, who we see as the primary educators.
