Science High School

The curriculum aims to produce graduates who are science, technology, work, and values-oriented citizens; who are capable of meeting the challenges of the times; and who are imbued with values through Filipino cultural heritage.

Apart from the enriched Science and Mathematics subjects, the curriculum is even more strengthened by the integration of AutoCAD, Robotics and Coding Education, and the use of ARALinks.
