The desire to better understand the world and oneself can be kindled in all students. Once ignited, this desire can intensify. Often, the first spark is lit when students realize the value of what they are learning. The learning environment should enable students to grow at all spheres of development – cognitively, socially, emotionally, and physically. 

The educational system today in many emerging East Asian countries is more than ‘igniting a fire’. A fire is a metaphoric force to inspire young minds to dream, believe, and achieve.
