Junior High School

The High School Unit builds on and refines the academic and personal formation programs of the Grade School. High School students are trained to acquire clarity, order and precision in thought, skill in analysis, judgment and expression, and the ability to reflect on their learning experiences. These goals of education are measured using performance-based assessments. Student engagement in school is also widely promoted through active participation in clubs and other extra-curricular activities. With the help of their mentors, students are able to turn good habits into lifelong virtues which they practice as they face the intricacies of teenage life.

Academic Program

The Day School Junior High School Academic Program and Curriculum Framework follow that of Understanding by Design (UbD), just as the Grade School. The program focuses on the holistic formation of the students, that is, personal and academic formation are given emphasis. In particular, the intellectual-cognitive formation of students is premised on the exacting use and training of the mind. In the classroom context, going beyond the text and determining if students indeed understood the lesson means an emphasis on the development of critical thinking skills.

The learning and acquisition of knowledge, skills, and virtues does not only take place inside the classroom nor is it confined to the traditional academic subjects. Southridge advocates the study of arts as skills and the inclusion of extra-curricular activities in the school curriculum.

Besides the objectives pertaining to the development of qualities of thought and specific thinking skills, the high school curriculum aims to achieve other crucial objectives (although these objectives must be appreciated in their proper context, that is, as steps towards the attainment of goals in education). These objectives include: 1) understanding of basic ideas of theology and philosophy, 2) the cultivation of virtue, and 3) extensive knowledge of the Philippines as a political community. The cultivation of virtues is accomplished throughout all the course offerings. It is the inculcation of good habits that is related to but has a deeper meaning to knowledge. It is akin to developing human freedom. On the other hand, extensive knowledge of our country implies the goal of citizenship. Civic education must not be confined to imparting knowledge alone but must also include civic dispositions and cultivating civic skills. Students must be conscious of promoting the greater good through active involvement in the school and in the community. Civic education and civic development in particular is related to student opportunities to serve others especially the needy.
