The Ateneo Grade School is the unit of the Ateneo de Manila educational system that provides elementary education (Kinder and Grades 1 to 6). Its immediate aim is to provide learning tools, skills, habits, attitudes and values that will be needed by the students in pursuing studies in Junior and Senior High School and in the tertiary levels, and beyond.


The Ateneo provides a well-balanced program of activities and experiences to develop academic competence and a commitment to Christian values. It strives to form its students into young Catholic Christian men who will become leaders in the service of God and mankind.


Its first rector was Fr. Jose Fernandez Cuevas, then Superior of the Society of Jesus in the Philippine Province.
