LSGH adopts co-education system in senior high

As part of its efforts to bring the school towards full integration, La Salle Green Hills has recently adopted a co-education system for senior high school, admitting, for the first time in sixty years, female enrollees in Grade 11.

A landmark decision by the school’s Board of Trustees, the shift from an exclusive-for-boys to a co-education set-up in the senior high school is seen as crucial in facilitating a smooth transition from high school to college. A coed environment provides opportunities to learn and work together productively.

LSGH launches new learning initiative

'FLETCH is not just a program but a direction where education can be meaningful, collaborative, values-based, supported and safe.’

As the pandemic continues to pose health risks, the need to explore alternative learning method that allows safer access to education becomes imperative. On July 20, with the opening of classes for Grades 11 and 12, La Salle Green Hills has officially piloted its new online learning program, FLETCH or Flexible Lasallian Education through Technology and Collaboration at Home.

FLETCH features two essential learning modalities: Home-Based Online Learning (HBOL) and Blended Learning.

Blended learning is a combination of face-to-face learning in the classroom and online learning. For the duration of the first and second trimesters (July 20 to December 18), an online learning set-up will be adopted.

In February, subject to clearance from health authorities and local government units, La Salle Green Hills hopes to shift to blended learning.

La Salle Green Hills takes on an integrated approach

After sixty years, La Salle Green Hills has made the big shift to an integrated school set-up, bringing students, teachers and staff from three academic units - Grade School, High School, and Alternative Education (formerly Adult Night High School) – together under the leadership of one integrated school principal.

With all the academic units integrated, the school aims to make the teaching and learning process from Nursery to Grade 12 more effective, the curriculum more cohesive, the organizational structure leaner and more streamlined, and Lasallian education more inclusive.

The school’s integration involves switching back to a trimester system, allowing more flexibility in the delivery of an efficient learning experience.
