Through our Parents Eyes

Abdullah grew instinctively with a strong sense of responsibility to society. He became the head perfect and was also a recipient of a full scholarship. He now aims to continue his education at one of the top universities in the word. I give all credit to the school as none of this would be possible without its personalized support. I strongly recommend the M.D Gunasena Education to all parents.

Educating your children is the best of investment you can make. As a parent, I am satisfied beyond the expectation of the education my son received at M.D Gunasena International School.
