APC high school scholars studying at St. Isidore High School in Zamboanguita, Malaybalay, Bukidnon
We have 24 high school scholars studying down the valley from Bendum in Zamboanguita this year. Ten of them were honor students in the 1st Quarter, and a number have leadership positions in the student government. Pinpin Serafin, APC Youth Coordinator, lives with them.
This year, St. Isidore High School, the Jesuit parochial school attended by our scholars, began using the Dynamic Learning Program (DLP) developed by the Central Visayan Institute Foundation (CVIF). CVIP’s physicist owners won the Ramon Magsaysay Award for this in 2010.
APC scholars are adjusting to the DLP method, which entails a lot of independent study and writing work in class, with lectures only comprising 20% of class time.
DLP has proven successful in improving student performance in the CVIF school and is now being adopted by high schools around the country.
