Junior High School
The Junior High School Department provides secondary level education based on the requirements of the Department of Education in an environment that is distinctly Salesian. The department delivers a double curriculum – Academic, covering subject areas in a college preparatory high school, as well as a Technical curriculum, with specializations in Electronics, Electricity, Mechanics, Computer Technology and Industrial Drafting. There is also a Science and Information Technology Section which will give the students in the section an advanced background in the field of physical sciences, as a response to the demands of today’s phase of modernization.
Dual Academic-Technical Curriculum
From the very beginning, Don Bosco has offered a unique dual curriculum that prepares young people not only in academics but also in technical related courses. Graduates of Don Bosco schools have been known for their practical and theoretical technical know-how and have been the best proofs of the quality training Don Bosco offers its students.
We are also the first to innovate and one of the only schools to employ a unique dual academic-and-technical curriculum in the Philippines. Our technical programs not only enhance our students skills and knowledge in the fields of drafting, mechanics, programming, and electronics, but also encourage them to apply what they’ve learned in their daily lives. This, coupled with the fact of Don Bosco’s unique emphasis on character formation from a young age, has led to our graduates being well-renowned in the industry for their capacity to adapt and excel in their own fields, while retaining that signature Bosconian identity of remaining humble and morally grounded in whatever they do.
