While all the years students spend in the academe are all important, there is something unique when it comes to high school education. It is here that many academic careers are made – or unfortunately in the case of some, are broken. This is why the University of Batangas has a distinct educational strategy designed to minimize such occurrences and instead allow students to express and discover their teenage selves, all the while continuing to be actively engaged in their studies.
Proof of this is in the University High School Department's numerous achievements. In a single school year alone, many of its high school students consistently win several of the highest honors in some of the country's most prestigious competitions, such as the Regional and National Schools' Press Conference and the Metrobank – DepEd Math Challenge, among many others.
The University of Batangas is proud that its efforts through the years in achieving these goals have made it at par with the best schools in the country, through the combination of the most effective teaching methods, innovative programs, research and modern technology. In fact, we are the only institution that values its students so that we offer free evening classes to qualified and deserving students – which we believe speaks to how committed we are to enabling one and all to have access to a world-class level of secondary education.
Since its establishment in 1948, the Department has nurtured thousands of students through an intensive academic curriculum that embraces faith in God, love of wisdom and service to fellowmen, and many of its alumni have moved on to achieve excellence in college and in their professional careers after they have left the academe.
The Department has a distinction of having been awarded the title of “Natatanging Paaralan ng Pribadong Sektor sa Lungsod ng Batangas” in 2010 and has earned a Level II Accredited Status in compliance with the strict standards of the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities - Commission on Accreditation (PACUCOA).
For many people, the years they spend in high school are where some of their most significant memories are made. There are memories of heartbreak and young love, of journeys of self-discovery and the beginnings of life-long friendships. High school at the University of Batangas is where all these things happen, and more. We acknowledge the impact these teenage years have on developing minds, and we are committed to helping fine-tune and guide these impressionable young boys and girls get through this phase in their lives while enabling them to learn and develop the skills and educational attainment they will need for their tertiary education in the future.
