Senior High School (SHS) completes the third stage of compulsory basic education.  It consists of two (2) years (Grades 11 and 12) of high school education following the completion of four (4) years of Junior High School (JHS).


SHS shall serve as a specialized higher level secondary education, consisting of different tracks, strands and specializations that learners may choose from depending on their aptitude and interests, and school capacity.

The SHS Curriculum, as part of the K to 12 Program, aims to produce graduates who have the following characteristics:

  • Holistically developed;
  • Equipped with 21st century skills (i.e., learning and innovation skills, life and career skills, communication skills, and information media and technology skills); and
  • Prepared for the future, be it in pursuit of higher education or acquisition of middle-level skills, or geared towards employment or entrepreneurship.

Tracks and Strands
