About School of the Nations

The School of the Nations, an internationally-oriented day school, was founded by members of the Macau Bahá’í community exactly 30 years ago to serve the local and expatriate communities. At present, over 650 students from age 3 to 18 are instructed by a professional and diverse teaching staff.

Our school is dedicated to nurturing the physical, intellectual and spiritual development of children and youth, and developing their capabilities to contribute to the well-being of their families and communities. We are constantly innovating in order to achieve this. Over the years we have been honored to be recognized with local and international awards for our programs, including the holistic Hidden Gems curriculum we developed internally and has since been adopted by kindergartens in countries abroad. Yet we consider the qualities and attitudes we see in our students as the surest evidence of success. In brief, School of the Nations is a Bahá’í school, which means it aims to operate in ways that reflect the high ideals contained in the Bahá’í teachings.
