Senior High School Strands
Our Senior High School Program concentrates on six major strands that will give students a wider choice of specialization and skills-match.
Accountancy, Business & Management (ABM)
The ABM strand is designed to equip the students with managerial, numeracy and literacy skills necessary to meet the competencies and demands of globally competitive entrepreneurship. Courses on accounting, finance, marketing and management are taken under this strand. Students graduating from the ABM strand are expected to prepare a business plan, feasibility study or project study and undergo work immersion to allow for the application of knowledge and skills acquired in class.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)
The STEM strand aims to develop the students' science/technology/math literacy, research and experimental skills in order to be able to contribute to the field of scientific and technological investigation. Courses in calculus, general and physical sciences are thoroughly explored in this strand. A science-related research and investigation with abstracts accessible in the worldwide web is required among graduating students for the fulfilment of the course requirements.
Humanities and Social Sciences (HUMSS)
The HUMSS strand equips the students with critical thinking, research and literacy skills pertinent to social and cultural work and other pursuits in the field of the liberal arts. Graduating students should be able to complete a simple research study or action research reflecting the application of the essential concepts learned in the HUMSS strand. Courses focusing on the study of creative writing, the humanities, mankind, society, and philosophy are offered in this strand.
General Academic Strand (GAS)
The GAS strand aims to develop the skills and competencies involved in the previous strands to prepare the student for tertiary education. Selected specialization courses from the ABM, STEM and HUMSS are taken under this strand. Students are also expected to come up with a research paper and undergo work immersion for the application of knowledge and skills acquired in class.
Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) strand offers courses in Computer Programming, Animation and Computer Hardware Servicing to develop the technical literacy of students to carry out ICT-related tasks. Students under this strand are required to undergo regular performance appraisal and demonstration to have their competencies assessed. Moreover, this course prepares students for the demands of the TESDA National Competency Assessment.
The strand on Home Economics (HE) offers courses in Cookery, Bread and Pastry Production, and Food and Beverage Services to students who are interested in the field of food preparation and restaurant work. It aims to equip them with practical and experimental skills necessary for product presentation & development. Moreover, this course is a prerequisite to the TESDA National Competency Assessment given to students who complete the training requirements of the qualification.
