You can view the subjects that you will take every term in the curriculum guides:

What are the credentials of your Senior High School teachers?

Teachers in our Senior High School program are the same teachers from our College programs. They are licensed, master’s degree graduates, and industry-practicing professionals. This profile makes our apprenticeship in SHS a balance of theory and practice.

What is the grading system used in Benilde Senior High School?

As prescribed by the Department of Education on the grading system for Senior High School programs, students will be assessed based on performance tasks.

The minimum grade needed to pass a specific learning area is 60, which is transmuted to 75 in the report card. The lowest mark that can appear on the report card is 65 and the highest is 100.

Is there a school uniform for Senior High?

Right now, Benilde SHS does not prescribe a uniform. Once face-to-face classes resume, consultation with Benilde SHS stakeholders will be held to decide on this matter. However, depending on your subject requirements, your teacher may require you to wear corporate/executive attire or other subject-specific uniforms for some synchronous sessions (classes where all students are required to attend at a scheduled time). 

You must also wear appropriate attire and observe the General Dress Code Policy on campus and during synchronous online classes. Your clothing should not bear any images or text that are offensive, overly revealing, or if sleeveless, shoulder straps should be at least an inch thick.

Is there a school bus service?

Unfortunately, we do not have an official school bus service. The campuses, however, are accessible to major routes of public transportation.

Will I be automatically accepted to a college program in Benilde after graduating from Benilde Senior High School?

It depends on your General Weighted Average (GWA). Benilde SHS students who can maintain a GWA of at least 85% will be automatically accepted to undergraduate programs with board examinations (e.g. BS Architecture) and at least 80% for programs that don’t have board exams.

Will SHS students be allowed to use the college facilities?

Yes. To immerse students in real-world experiences, SHS students will also have access to our state-of-the-art and up-to-date facilities that emulate industry practices and scenarios.

What campus spaces can SHS students access?

When face-to-face classes resume, Benilde SHS classes will be held mainly in the Mutien-Marie Hall of Taft Campus. Laboratory classes, however, will be held in various facilities on different campuses of Benilde.

Benilde SHS students can also access the learning commons, library, cafeteria, and other common areas on the campus.

Will SHS students be mixed with college students in class?

Classes held for Benilde SHS subjects are exclusively for SHS students. SHS students will not be mixed with college students since they have different curriculums mandated by their educational agencies, namely the Department of Education for SHS and the Commission on Higher Education for college programs. However, they will share the same common areas and facilities as the college students.
