Academic System

Del Rosario Elementary School uses the K-12 academic system mandated by the K-12 Law of 2012. Under the leadership of former President Benigno C. Aquino III, the nation’s basic academic system was overhauled. This is in the hope of producing graduates who are better prepared to be more competitive in the global labor market.

To ensure that our graduates are equipped with everything they need in their adult lives, we emphasize thorough instruction in the following areas:

  • Language
  • mathematics
  • Science
  • Values
  • Life skills
  • Love of country
  • Service to fellow men

Regardless if a child opts to pursue tertiary education or decides to join the labor force immediately, the knowledge and skills he or she learns will suffice in providing ample livelihood opportunities.


Similar to most traditional learning institutions, we quantify a child’s performance in order to gauge his or her level of learning with every lesson. The methods we use are as follows:

  • Quizzes
  • Recitations
  • Performances
  • Projects
  • Long examinations
  • Homework

While we believe that grades are not the absolute measures of a child’s capacity, we do use them to asses areas where he or she excels and areas where more work is necessary. This guides our efforts to partner with each child’s parents in order to consistently educate him or her inside the campus and at home.


Awards and citations are given to students who exhibit a high level of mastery in most subjects. Honors are given at the end of each school year to students who attain the following general average ranges:

  • 98-100 – With Highest Honors
  • 95-97 – With High Honors
  • 90-94 – With Honors

In recognition of special talents and gifts in very specific areas of intelligence, Del Rosario Elementary School also bestows special awards to students who excel in sports, performing arts, music, visual arts and other areas.


Learning from outside the classroom are just as vital to a child’s development as those gained from inside a classroom. Therefore, we encourage each student to participate in extra-curricular and co-curricular programs recognized by the school in order to develop social skills, kinesthetic intelligence, self-confidence, team spirit and other intangible qualities that are important in a child’s development.
