Over 57,000 Senior High School program offerings available nationwide

Incoming senior high school (SHS) students only have to choose their track based on their interest and skills and they would be better prepared for whichever exit point they plan on pursuing after high school—go to college, develop more skills, start a business, or get employed.

Such is the expectation amid the 28,844 SHS program offerings spread among 5,990 DepEd public schools nationwide. This is on top of the 28,991 SHS programs also offered by 5,046 private schools, public and private universities and colleges, and technical-vocational institutions nationwide. 

Calling all Senior High School graduates

The Negros Occidental High School (NOHS) in Negros Occidental was chosen as one of the pilot schools to implement Senior High School (SHS) in SY 2012-2013. For their initial offering they chose Contact Center Service Course for their 52 enrollees who graduated in Junior High School from the said school.
This development opened doors of opportunities for two students, who at first had their doubts on the SHS program. “Back then I viewed the SHS as an additional expense to my parents and to myself,” said Janse Richnella Padilla.

Senior High grad shares his ingredients to success

“Hindi hadlang ang kahirapan upang magkaroon ng magandang buhay dahil nasa ating kamay ang ating ikauunlad.”. These are the words Rendel Mancera Cortez lives by.
Mancera is just one of many who took advantage of the Department of Education’s (DepEd) Senior High School Program (SHS) pilot program at Lamon Bay School of Fisheries to better his situation.
“Buti na lamang at naisipan ko at ng aking mga magulang na sumubok sa SHS program, malaking kaluwagan ito para sa kanila,” he said.

DepEd Senior HS Voucher online application ends on May 6

The Department of Education (DepEd) reminds private Grade 10 completers who are not Education Service Contracting (ESC) grantees to catch up with the voucher application deadline set on Friday, May 6, 2016 for its Senior High School (SHS) Voucher Program.

DepEd through the Private Education Assistance Committee (PEAC) reopened the application last April 22, 2016 to enable more Grade 10 completers to have the option to enroll in SHS in private schools, public and private universities and colleges, or technical vocational institutions come June 2016.

Angkinin ang pagkakataon

Sinasabi na kapag meron tayong ibinigay, meron din sa ating babalik.
Sa usapin ng K to 12, ang hinihingi sa atin ng pamahalaan ay ang pagbubukas ng isip upang tanggapin ang isang malawakang pagbabago na inaasahang magpapabago din sa sistema ng edukasyon at sa atin mismong pagtingin sa edukasyon.
Mahirap tanggapin sa una na ang dating apat na taon ng pag-aaral ay madadagdagan pa ng dalawang taon para sa mas masusing paghahanda sa mundo ng hanapbuhay o mas mataas pang edukasyon.
