EDUCATIONAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

Program: Special Projects

A. ELEMENTARY


Out of the 66 elementary scholars which we assisted during the School Year 2011-2012, 15 students have graduated in March and are now promoted to first year high school***.


***Beginning this School Year 2012-2013, the K+12 model will be adopted by the Department of Education. This model involves Kindergarten, six years of elementary education, four years of junior high school (Grades 7 to 10) plus another two years of senior high school (Grades 11 to 12). The two years extension will provide the students of in-depth specialization on the occupation/career track they wish to pursue.
