Following the signing into law of Republic Act Republic Act No. 10533 (referred to as the K-12 Law), Alasas Integrated School started preparations for the significant shift in academic systems. Instead of the separate preschool, elementary and high school levels from the previous system, all levels of education prior to college will now be unified.
In the K-12 system, elementary school and high school are replaced by the grade school, junior high school and senior high school phases. More years are added to the total number of schools to enhance the level of education and livelihood skills are emphasized in the last years of basic education. Throughout a child’s schooling, the following domains of development are focused on and nurtured:
- Life skills
- Love of country
- Service to fellow men
By combining proven teaching methodologies, resources and experience, we strive to consistently deliver academic and character-building lessons that will bolster every child’s development. We believe this can best be achieved by balancing academic learnings with social experiences and by partnering with parents in the proper guidance of our students.
In order to gauge the progress of each student in academic and co-curricular areas, Alasas Integrated School makes use of performance tests and written examinations. These allow us to quantify a student’s state of learning, helping us identify individual strengths and areas of improvement.
Grades per subject are determined at the end of each quarter and reported to the parents. At the end of the school year, grades are averaged and reported to measure a child’s overall progress within the school year.
SELECTION OF HONORS
Alasas Integrated School recognizes the value of recognizing academic excellence from students who have exerted great effort to further their learnings. As such, the school bestows awards to top-performing pupils for each level at the end of every school year. To qualify for academic awards, the following grade averages must be met:
- 98-100 – With Highest Honors
- 95-97 – With High Honors
- 90-94 – With Honors
In addition to honors, students may also receive special awards for excellence in individual subjects and extra-curricular activities. This is to underscore the importance of excellence not just within the classroom but also in activities outside of it.
CO-CURRICULAR AND EXTRA-CURRICULAR PROGRAMS
As a synergy to academics, Alasas Integrated School facilitates and supports extra-curricular activities for its students. Sporting events, performing arts and civic works are among the types of activities that we hold every year. We also perform acts of community service within the capacity of our humble institution.
