What is Senior High School?


Senior High School
(SHS) refers to the
last two years of
the K to 12 Program,
and includes
Grades 11 and 12.
In SHS, students will
go through a core
curriculum and
subjects under a
track of their
choice.
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

Will SHS mean two more years


of High School?

Yes.

These two additional years will equip


learners with skills that will better prepare them
for the future, whether it be:
Employment
Entrepreneurship
Skills Development (Further Tech-Voc training)
Higher Education (College)
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

Is SHS really neccessary?

YES, because the law now prescribes


that SHS is a part of compulsory basic
education.
Once SHS is fully implemented in SY 201617, you will need to go through it in order
to graduate High School.
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

What if I do not want to go to SHS?

Technically, its your choice. But


you wont get a High School
diploma.
You will be called a Grade 10
completer, but you will miss out on
the benefits of a full High School
graduate.
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

What are the benefits of SHS?


SHS has been developed
to lead you to one of
four career pathways or
exits almost like doors
for which SHS is the key:
1. Employment
2. Entrepreneurship
3. Higher Education
4. Middle Skills
Development
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

Employment
Learners are more prepared for
work
For technical and vocational careers,
you will already be able to apply for
TESDA Certificates.
For most choices, private company
partners are ready to take you on for
immersion (work and gain experience
while studying), training and hiring.
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

Entrepreneurship
You will be equipped
with the skills to either
start your own
business, or continue
running your family
business.

DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

Higher Education
Some College and University
core subjects have now
been integrated into SHS,
which means less
repetition.
If you do go to college, the
subjects you take on will be
more focused and more
relevant to your chosen
course.
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

Middle Skills Development


This benefit applies to Technical and
Vocational careers. While at SHS,
you will already learn specialized
skills.
Continuing education at other Tech-Voc
institutions means being able to get to
more advanced subjects faster.

DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

Will the additional two years


of High School mean
additional expenses?
NOT NECESSARILY. SHS
completes basic education by
making sure that the high school
graduate is equipped for work,
entrepreneurship, or higher education.
This is a step up from the 10-year
cycle where high school graduates
still need further education (and
expenses) to be ready for the world.
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

11

Additional expenses?

SHS will be offered free in


public schools and there will be a
voucher program in place for
public junior high school completers
as well as ESC beneficiaries of
private high schools should they
choose to take SHS in private
institutions.
This means that the burden of
expenses for the additional two
years need not be completely
shouldered by parents.
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

12

What is Voucher Program?


It provides subsidies to students who
wish to enroll in a private or non-DepEd
Senior High School.
All Grade 10 completers from public
schools and all Grade 10 completers in
private high schools who are Education
Service Contracting (ESC) grantees
automatically get one.
Private high school Grade 10 completers
who are not ESC grantees can apply for
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

13

Will I need a Voucher if I enroll in a


public SHS?
NO, you will not need a voucher subsidy
because public high schools do not have
tuition fees.

DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

14

How much will my Voucher


be worth?
It varies depending on what type of
high school student you are and where
the SHS you plan to enroll at is located.
Public Grade 10 Students get 100% of
the voucher value.
o Private Grade 10 Students who are
ESC grantees get 80% of the Voucher
value.

DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

15

My Vouchers worth?
Regardless if youre a Grade 10
completer from a public or private
Junior High School, if you enroll in a
local or state college or university,
you get 50% of the voucher value.
Your teacher or Guidance Counselor

voucher value. The table on the next
page may also guide you.

Technical Vocational Livelihood


These are aligned with the
Technology and Livelihood Education
(TLE) Learning Area in Grades 7 to
10.
Each TVL strand offers various
specializations that may or may not
have a National Certificate (NC)
equivalent from the Technical
Education and Skills Development
Authority (TESDA).
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

23

Technical Vocational Livelihood


The time allocation per TVL specialization is
aligned with the TESDA Training
Regulations-Based Courses and is in
multiples of 80 hours following the
conventions for SHS subjects.
Therefore, each TVL specialization is
designed to fit into the 80-hour blocks of
time.
TLE and TVL specializations may be taken
between Grades 9 to 12. Schools may offer
specializations from the four strands as long
as the prescribed number of hours for each
specialization is met.
