Every Filipino family values education of their children as the top priority among other things. In this time of pandemic, this should not be put to halt as stressed by Education Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones in many of her statements. “We push boundaries and explore new paths for quality education to continue and find ways for learning.”
This Enrollment Manual aims to provide salient information on basic questions that the public may ought to know in ensuring that their children will receive proper education as the school year formally begins.
