Yup, Ako... I kinda regret choosing DB din. Had a lot of good memories there but still.. Kung wala lang 7th grade ang ibang school eh. =)

Meh, to each his own. I personally don't know how current graduates (this includes the graduates of the past 5-6 years ) can gauge the upcoming generation of Bosconians as "good" or "bad", as well as the status of the institution itself, as it is indeed somewhat unfair. (comparing your batch to their batch? really now?)
Being an alumni of this school (yes, I'm targeting the alumni critics), would you not want to actually do something to help the next generation of Bosconians, instead of just typing your displeasures and putting down the next generation? You are posting this in an internet forum, which can be accessed by technically anyone who knows how to use a PC and click "Internet Browser". I wonder what the current enrolled Bosconians are thinking while reading our inputs? You wouldn't want them to just wade in self-pity and actually listen to your perceived flaws of them just for the sake of you saying "I was right"?
We were once (or still are) proclaimed as "the Future of this Country"; they will be proclaimed as such to.
Oh well, just my two cents.
^ I know what you mean.. and I'm currently enrolled in DBTI.
That's just how the way I see it lang, the way I feel.. Opinions may be different if you will ask my batchmates/ classmates. To each his own lang talaga. Peace!
DBTI is still a good school though. Advanced yung mga tinuturo sa Math and Science.
Dehins naman worse, more like uncivilized peeps. Ugaling skwater ika nga. Like I said, students lang talaga. Kaso wala na talaga eh, students today need and Iron Fist to govern them. They need to tighten all the school policies. Walang motivation. Bihira na nga lang ang Bosconian na pari ngayon o mga pumapasa sa mga top universities eh. Mediocre mind na ang mga students ngayon. It's okay for them to settle for less.
Hi. I am a former student of Don Bosco Makati. I graduated Grade School 2003. I then transferred to Ateneo High School. I just graduated from the Loyola Schools last March 2011.
I am new here in Pinoyexchange. I have read everything in this thread. I really felt bad after reading the comments. I have a lot of good memories in DBTI. Up to now, some of my closest friends are graduates of Don Bosco. I am still connected to a lot of them.
What hurts more than these comments is the fact that I agree with them. I have seen my batchmates flunking some of their classes. Most of them cannot speak English well. I don't think a lot of them are good in Math as well. Most of them did not get to good universities after high school.
When I transferred to Ateneo, I had to adjust to their style of education. I was one of the top students in DB (top sa ranking, varsity player) before but when I came to Ateneo, it took me some time before getting back to the honor's list. That was really the time when I realized the huge discrepancy in the quality of education.
Up until now, I still follow the things taught to me in Don Bosco, especially "Do you duties extraordinarily well." It sucks that my friends kind of "un-learned" these values. So i guess, DBTI is also lacking not just in academics but also in values formation.
Nevertheless, I still really enjoy my friends from this school. They are really fun to hang out with. Daming kalokohan! Malakas nga lang mang-asar kasi medyo stereotyped ako as atenista. And! Masipag naman sila maghanap ng trabaho! Also, sobrang gusto ko *** school ngayon kasi ganda ng facilities. I just really hope that they improve the quality of education, values-formation. I also hope they teach their students to dream big and reach for more! In the end, I ll never forget this school. I miss it! Bosconian pa rin ako!
Hi I'm also a former graduate from DBTI Makati batch 2007. Regarding the topic it is quite true but I think they are doing some interventions regarding the quality of the education. I think the teachers are continuing their education as well as far as I know. The school is good to look at now. It is somewhat on par with the other famous schools in terms of facilities. Well it actually looks like a playground right now since there are a lot of basketball courts haha. Pero I really think they are doing their best when it comes to improving education. I know we kinda suck on some subjects because when I entered UST nursing I was shocked with the the chemistry subject. Our chemistry in Highschool for a year was discussed and finished in an hour during college. I really needed to work the **** out of myself just to cope up.
Regarding naman po sa pagkakapresent niyo. Sana lang medyo inayos niyo yung pagkakasabi. It seems to be VERY DISRESPECTFUL. There is a much better way of saying that the quality of OUR ALMA MATER is already dropping hindi yung pagkakatype niyo na "OLATS na ang mga teacher" that's just being plain disrespectful sir. And sana po wala mag judge about other people kasi it is not nice to see that you, a student of DBTI would speak about the school in this manner at the same time disrespecting some of the people in that High school. Sana lang po marealize niyo rin yun kasi you haven't proven anything also right? Sana lang po ay gumamit ng tamang pananalita hindi yung bara-bara para hindi naman masira ng tuluyan name ng Alma Mater natin.
My hubby and I are looking for a better school to transfer our 9 year old son. He is currently studying in a catholic school with Level III accreditation from PAASCU for grade school level. Okay na sana kaso ang problema namin yong character formation ng mga bata very lax ang school niya ngayon in disciplining students. Told us something like positive discipline reinforcement but I believe it doesnt work at all.
Since we live in near Manila-Makati-Manda we have 2 choices lang OBMC and DB. I would like to thank you guys for giving me an in-depth understanding how discipline goes inside your school. We went to DB Manda and asked how they address bullying problems of the kids, she replied "Lahat naman ng school may mga bullies eh!" =( Isip namin to try DB makati but with your comments natakot ako lalo. You save me time researching further.
I too wish mabalik na sa dati and DB, education and character formation at its best. My dad said during the 70s magagaling raw at mababait ang mga students ng DB (Makati). Well-bred ika nga. It was an observation he and my lola shared, madalas kasi tambay daddy ko for basketball session with his Bosconian friends. My lola even tried transferring him there but dad gained to love his alma mater, Baste.
nanira ka pa ng pangalan ng school?
nasa estudyante yan.
I am also an alumni of DBTI Makati batch 97. I have red all the post from the start .I did not like how the topic "Don Bosco Makati is NO LONGER a good school " coz its very hurtful for us alumni's and those who are still studying at busko. DBTI is having renovations and innovations to improve the school structurally and academically.Sana pati sa Technical din meron.We alumni understand the point of you students still studying there. We love our Alma Matter kaya kami nag rereact ng ganito. Di naman din kasi lahat ng produkto na estudyante ng bawat eskwelahan ay "best" lagi. meron ding "good" , "average " and sadly "worst" kada batch. Kaya siguro ganun ang observation ng ibang co Alumni ng busko kasi siguro naexperience nila *** iba na bagong henerasyon na produkto ng eskwelahan natin.Opo dual curiculum po tayo academic and technical.Pero po *** ibang mga kaklase ko na nag aral sa ibang eskwelahan sa kolehiyo eh di lahat kumuha ng engineering related courses kaya di rin magagamit *** sinsabing "edge" sa ibang schools.Tungkol din naman po sa techncal eh masasabi ko ay di tayo nangunguna pero di naman tayo ang kulelat.. bali above average lang po ang DBTI sa technical aspect..Eto po halimbawa ng sinasabi ko sa technical side. ako po din ay nag aral ng EE sa MIT intramuros manila.Kala ko me "edge" talaga kami ng mga 3 years dun sa technical side pero halos 1 1/2 yrs *** *** ang aming lamang. Lamang lang tyo sa drafting kasi 4 na taon natin ginagamit eto nung highschool. tapos nun wala na pantay pantay na. pag majoring kana (meaning po neto ay nasa 3rd yr kana pataas at lahat ng subjects mo eh related na sa kinuha mung kurso. para sa mga estudyante pa ng busko na nagbabasa ng threads dito para maintindihan nyo *** mga terminong sinasabi kopo)lalo na sa course ko na Electrical engineer at galing ako sa ELX shop sa busko, bale ang edge na sinasabi dun eh sa basic electronics lang na subject at take note first 5 to 6 lessons lang *** ng prof tpos lalalim pa.. dun kami nabigla hehehe.Halos po kasi basic po ang technical na tinuturo sa atin sa busko. tulad ng tinuro samin nila sir tayab at sir garcia sa elx , uu nagamit namin un kaso pambungad lang pa pala un ngkursong kinuha ko kahit na *** mga kaibigan ko na ECE naman kinuha at sa ELX shop din sya nanggaling na kaklase ko din eh ganun din ang kinabigla nila..para makapantay tyo sa kalidad ng ibang eskwelahan eh kung isasama sa kurikulum ng mga bata *** introduction to calculus, advance math at sa ibat ibang shops naman eh dagdagan ng mga subjects na ituturo nila bout sa shop nila. isang halimbawa para sa electrical shop eh kung idadagdag sa itinuturo sa kanila ang basic load computations/distributions/design,powerplant design/generation/transmission and distribution.sa elx naman isang magandang halimbawa kung matutunan din nila sa technical na aspeto ay *** basic microwave, telephony atbp.para masabi natin na lamang tayo sa technical na aspeto..Sa academic naman eh on par naman kahit papaano ang DBTI. But in the English subjects i think the school needs to improve the knowledge of the students to speak fluent english, broaden their vocabulary skills and improve their writing skills also.para pong kelangan ibalik *** polisiyang ginawa samin nuon na pag nasa school eh we need to speak english, pwera lang pag ang klase eh pilipino at sibika at kultura.kasi me mga nakakausap naman akong mga estudyante pa dyan sa busko pag ako eh nagagawi sa waltermart. marurunong naman sila mag ingles.. kelangan lang talaga ngpractice at exposure para gumaling ang mga bata sa busko.Tama din po ang punto ng iba na kasalanan din ng mga magulang at mga guro bakit nagkaganun ang kalidad ng mga bata.sa eskwela ang mga guro ang nagtuturo ng kaalaman sa mga bata at nag gagabay sa kanila ng tamang asal.pag uwi sa bahay eh responsibilidad din ng magulang na turuan at gabayan ang mga anak sa mga leksyon nya sa eskwela at hubugin ang magandang asal. kaya po di lahat ng sisi at ituro sa mismong eskwelahan natin.. sa mga bata na nagrereply sa mga post na eto, pwede pong pakiayos ang mga sagot ninyo at sumagot ng mahinahon at gamitan ng lamig ng ulo.una sa lahat di namin kayo sinisiraan o dinadown.. kasi ang kasiraan ng isang bosconian ay kasiraan ng lahat, damay damay lahat ng batch dyan.unawain nyo *** mga nababasa nyon mga post dito kasi maganda naman *** hangarin ng lahat dito pwera lang *** nagsimula netong post nato kasi pde naman nyang ipost eto dito ng hindi eto "Don Bosco Makati is NO LONGER a good school " ang ginawa nyang topic pde naman iba. sa mga alumni naman po lamig din po ng ulo kasi tayo po *** mga mas nakakaintindi kasi nadaanan na na tin *** mga experience na yan good and bad.. At dun po sa nag post na wala kaming malasakit mga alumni sa DBTI at mga taong nasa loob neto eh eto po ang maiiwan ko po sa inyo isang storya ng kasaysayan ng batch namin: noong 1997 ay ipinagpasya ng Father provincial ng pilipinas na ang DBTI Makati ay ayon sa kanya ay " not fit anymore to continue its school in makati because of its commercial influence and environment making it a bad influence for the students" and he would like to relocate DBTI to the calabarzon area. ako at ang aking mga kabatch 97 bilang mga 4th yr nung panahon na yun ay tumutol sa kagustuhan na un ng father provincial.Nagkaisa ang mga estudyante (elem/HS),faculty, manpower,salisyanong pari ng dbti makati at alumni ( uu nangalap at humingi kami ng tulong sa alumni para maisalba ang eskwelahan at umabot at mga alumni na tumulong samin hangganga sa ibang bansa pati kontak number ni honasan binigay samin para matulungan kami sa problema ng DBTI makati) at pati ang mga magulang ng mga estudyante ksam sa aming protesta.Umabot ang protesta namin sa father provincial at nagdesisyon syan ipagpaliban ang paggiba at paglipat ng eskwelahan sa calabarzon area ng 10 yrs. hanggang ngayon ay nakatayo pa din ang eskwelahan ng DBTI MAKATI sa don chino roces ave. brgy san lorenzo makati.. sa mga estudyante pde nyo to iverify ke sir tenerife,mam yumul, sir roy ng i d shop, tayab ng elx shop, sir melo ng bakal boys shop atbp mga gurong beterano ng eskwelahan..dun naman po sa lumaet sa mga beteranong guro wag naman kayo ganyan magagaling naman talaga sila lalo na si mam .arcibal kahit me nap time din kami sa panahon namin ehnaintindihan nya na napapagod din kaming mga estudyante kaya meron kami mga 7-10 mins na nap time. magaling syang magturo. sa mga alumni eto po ang impormasyon sa mga dati nating guro:
sir nabong nagretire na po sa dbti

Nasa student lang naman yan e. kahit gaano kaganda ang turo ng school kung yun student naman ay gagawa ng dahilan para masira ang pangalan ng DBTI. yun ang masakit.
graduate ako ng DBTI batch 03 - electrical tech
napansin ko lang nagiiba na talaga din ang mga graduate ng DBTI. siguro nasa mga teacher din yan.
sana palitan yun title ng thread sakit sa mata e.
I decided to teach in DB Makati because of the good old impression I had about them while I was still a student in a rival school in makati. New teachers in my Alma Mater who used to teach in DB Makati said it was a good school. I decided to check it out for myself. This is my honest opinion, good teachers are leaving because DB admin is a slave to the parents. Administration worships the parents. Teachers are often scapegoats. It is taboo to admit that a kid is not disciplined well at home so parents pay good money to DB Makati to have the privilege of blaming teachers. As a result, retarded kids who cannot compose a good essay at 6th grade. Call me callous, pero puro kabaklaan at noontime show humor ang umiikot sa school ngayon. I am even surprised to see teachers who find this very amusing. I have to dumb down my lesson plan kasi may rule sa faculty na pag may 10 na bagsak... ulit ang test. Just following orders.
One more thing... If they (teachers and students alike) hear anyone speak in English, they label him coņo or they say "nose bleed"... Pathetic. English is a basic skill that everyone should have. My English is not special and it doesn't make me special. Unfortunately, they think it does because they don't have the skills
I'm going to give this school a year or 2 before I decide to go to my Alma Mater
I'm from batch '83 and I am surprised at these comments. Our educational footing gave essence to our personal character as well as our technical prowess. I couldn't say the same for most schools most especially when we started with our careers where our peers seem to excel better than those without the kind of training we had in their chosen field of expertise. For instance, I have worked in the construction industry since 1990 and seem to be comfortable with it though I took a business course in college not a tech course like Architecture or Engineering. Four years of general drafting and tech training with 2 years of Automotive classes made a whole lot of difference in the field and that paved way for my dream business to be fulfilled. As for character building my take on it is it begins at home with the parents and strengthened only by the community where we choose to rear our children. I remember the weekly masses and the daily prayers and the relentless effort of our parish community to build and strengthen our relationship with the Lord most especially at the graduating years of our high school. The result is evidenced by our batch's closeness and commitment to pursue good and to promote help and aid to those who are in need both in Spiritual and Human nurturing. You cannot avert change as time and people evolve but you can choose to be a solid foundation for your children and your community with your choices. I made that choice when I sent myself to DBTI in high school and have never forgotten what they gave me regardless of change or development. We were not spared of those parents of spoiled kids that buy their way into grades while we slave for ours. I am sure they have paid dearly with their reckless deed as now we are parents ourselves and we need to be good examples in showing our kids how to resolve their issues. I wonder what kind of parenting those spoiled rich kids teach their children now.

And the hypocrisy continues...
Ang tindi talaga... Pati conduct grading system lokohan. TUITION = DELUSION. Ang babaw na talaga ng school. 4 weeks ang 2nd quarter. Tadtad ng activities at napagiiwanan ng todo ang academics ng mga bata. Nangangatog admin sa parents kaya sobrang watered down na ang mga lessons para magmukhang magaling ang mga students. Multiple Choice lang ang test kaya basura sa spelling ang karamihan ng mga students. Patay tong mga to pag labas ng Don Bosco. Magaling sa math compared to other schools pero maliit lang ang difference. Ramdam mo ang kabobohan ng ibang area heads.
Stay away from this school like a plague.
I am a Bosconian teacher and I have to tell you this I decided to teach in Don Bosco because of the impression it gave me when I was still a highschool student in a competing school. I gave it a shot. First quarter conduct deliberation pa lang... LOKOHAN na talaga kaya matatawa ka na lang sa sa mga meetings ng mga teachers. Lahat tahimik kasi admin tends to shut us up. Yung pinaka ********* ng ibang school... mataas na 80 sa conduct.... sa Don Bosco Makati pag naka 90 ang student, masama ang teacher. Hataw din sa grade adjustments ang mga teachers kahit sobrang tamad/bobo ng bata. Pakiramdam tuloy ng mga bata, ang gagaling nila.
Meron ngang bata na nagtanong sa akin "Teacher bakit puro bago mga teachers?"
Kung pwede ko lang talaga sagutin... "Kasi yung mga bago na namumulat talaga ng maaga sa kapalpakan ng school, umaalis agad. The desperate ones just stay... to preyed upon by incompetent admin who are *****es of what we call 'BAGONG YAMAN NA PARENTS' na kung umasta, kala mo walang pinagaralan at di ka na magtataka kung bakit RETARDS anak nila"
Meron ngang admin/teachers na pinapagalitan ang subordinates nila pag nakakuha ng mababa ang anak nila sa subject nung teacher.
I don't want this culture to rub into me.
I came from a competing school of Don Bosco. Nasa TOP 10 kami sa buong Pilipinas.
Don Bosco Makati... nasaan?
This will be my last year in Don Bosco. I'm so disgusted. With all due respect, stay away from this school like a plague.
BRAVO EL MARIACHI! Thanks for warning people about Don Bosco Makati. I am an alumnus of it but I am disgusted whenever the "products" of that school show their character. Ang daming mga gung gong at bugok. Tama, ang mga teacher na mahuhusay wala na (like Cazcarro) at ang mga natira na lang yung mga inaagiw na doon o kaya yung mga desperado nga.
Look at this article:
Be sure to click the link of the source website below (Anti Pinoy) and see the replies of the Bosconians. Masasagwaan ka sa mga "logic" at grammar.

^ I remember back in the 90's, we used to have those field demos/parades just like that. I see no harm in initiating eco-friendly campaigns like that, sir. Back then, we used to have tin can/newspaper drives din.
Plus, I don't think 'galing sa basurahan' naman yung pinasuot sa kanila.
It's true madami nang nawalang magagaling na teachers, quite disappointing na yung iba sa kanila ay lumipat na ng ibang schools, pero meron pa din naman natirang magagaling, like Ma'am Au Arcibal, Ma'am Sally De Villa, sir Tayab (last time I checked, they're all subject area heads na), sir Querubin, Ma'am Yumol, sir Darwin Buensuceso to name a few. You also have sir Alvin Paulin, kudos to his Boscorale!
Sa Elementary, nandiyan pa sina Ma'am Retales, Ma'am Nava, Sir Sonny and Ma'am Laico.
Nakakamiss yung mga teachers ko nung HS and elementary.
Imo, DBTI will always be a good school. Proud Bosconian here.
Pero ito fashion show ang pinagawa at tingnan mo naman ang mga itsura. Seems the whole idea came from Vice Ganda's jolog brain.
