Says Mr. Daniel Li, founder of EtonHouse International School Cambodia, “I am very excited about bringing this new philosophy in international education to Cambodia. It will not only set new standards, but more importantly will offer children residing here an opportunity to learn in an exceptional environment. Being a part of EtonHouse, also offers opportunities for the children and staff of EtonHouse Cambodia to interact, learn and share with their peers in other EtonHouse campuses around the world, thus adding more colour and diversity to their learning environment and inculcating international mindedness amongst them”

Mrs. Ng Gim Choo, Founder and Group Managing Director of the EtonHouse International Education Group added “EtonHouse is very excited to be in Cambodia. When we open a school in a new country, our aim is to first understand its people, its culture and then partner with like minded people who share our philosophy in education. We are very happy to be working with Daniel and his team to bring this wonderful learning space to Cambodia. We hope to be able to collaborate with families, staff and the people of Phnom Penh to offer an inspiring international education for global learners”,
