In recent years, it has already become a trend for wealthy parents to send their kids to an international school, which is an educational institution that was originally designed for foreigners to cater similar educational standards as to their origin countries.
Studying in an International school has many advantages as the students were able to receive modern teaching methods, explore different cultures, improve healthy language and communication skills, and a lot more.
But all these great benefits also come with a great price as the tuition and other fees here are very expensive. That is why only wealthy families can enroll their children in these kinds of schools.
Among them is the Pacquiao family, headed by none other than the Pambansang Kamao and Senator Manny “Pacman” Pacquaio, who is known as one of the wealthiest men in the country today.
Just like any parents, Manny and Jinkee Pacquiao only want what they think is best for their children when it comes to their education. Thus, for the couple, enrolling them in the best international school in the country is indispensable.
Their eldest child, 18-year-old Emmanuel “Jimuel” Pacquiao, Jr. recently graduated senior high school in Brent International School Manila. Based on the reports, Jimuel tuition fee ranges to $9,120 or P418,900 annually. Plus, other school fees amounting to $8,085 or P396,165.
Michael Stephen, the second child of Manny and Jinkee is also studying at Brent International School in Laguna. He is currently in his senior high school and has the same amount of school fees as their oldest Jimuel.
Mary Divine or Princess is the third child of the couple and their eldest daughter. She is only 13 years old and is currently in middle school. For her school level, her tuition fee in Brent is $8,784 or P403,512. This amount does not include her school fees for the whole year.
Their fourth child, Queenie or Queen Elizabeth is also in middle school and has the same tuition fee as her sister Princess.
Meanwhile, the couple’s youngest child, 5-year-old Israel is not yet attending school.
