Over the years, the University of Santo Tomas-Legazpi has proven itself as one of the leading Higher Education Institutions in the region. The University has prepared its physical and human resources for the full implementation of the K-12 curriculum; its Senior High School (SHS) program is managed by competent, committed, and experienced educators who ensure that students achieve quality education and holistic formation.
Faculty members utilize online learning management systems with integration of coding education system (Robotics) to supplement classroom instruction and elevate the students’ learning experience. The department also puts premium on research; guided by their advisers, students present their researches in national and international conferences.
Graduates of the UST-Legazpi SHS gain 21st century competencies necessary for the 4 exits envisioned for the K-12 program: higher education, employment, entrepreneurship, and middle-level skills development.

UST-Legazpi’s Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) strand develops the students’ ability to evaluate problems and critically formulate solutions through applying and integrating concepts in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It prepares them to pursue college degrees leading to careers as scientists, technological experts, engineers, mathematicians, programmers, and the like.
This strand provides pre-university training for learners who are inclined to pursue careers in accountancy, management, finance, banking, and entrepreneurship. Future workplaces include hotel and restaurant industries, tourism, banks, accounting firms, and corporate establishments.
