St. Theresa's College Q.c.
i think the schools which are of the same level are..
poveda and woodrose, miriam and ac sanlo, st. paul pasig and st. scho manila, and st. theresa's and school of the holy spirit qc.
i've known a lot of girls from these schools and in my opinion, the girls from..
poveda are high maintenance girls, most are all-out taglish speaking but doesn't mean they speak nonsense.
woodrose have good breeding and very studious but quiet. they choose not to bother with everyone else.
miriam seeks challenge in everything especially in academics, and they are humble but proud (contradicting but true). probably the result of not being pampered by having airconditioned classrooms and social actions every week.
assumption sanlo are same with miriam only they are not as humble for the reason that a lot of them but not all come from really rich families.
st. paul pasig are definitely mixed nuts. may jologs, may sossy, may matalino, may bobo, may matino, may addict, may girly may tibo and the list goes on. although the same thing applies to the other all girls schools, none of them seem to match the term 'mixed nuts' perfectly the way spcp does. they are quite vulgar too. a bit loud. but fun.
st. scho manila are the same with spcp girls although i think the debate team of st.scho is a plus.
st. theresa's college are simple. really, i can't seem to think of anything else to say other than that. they are not as exposed and heard of as the other schools mentioned but they do have a say in terms of academics.
school of the holy spirit are the same as st. theresa's girls only more exposed and heard of.
really simple girls..
woodrose for me... and I'm not being biased...
not all assumptionista are mahinhin and polite... some of them are rowdy as heck! I've had more than my fair share of these girls in glorietta... dunno if they're cutting classes or what pero that's not the point... laging ang ingay ingayAssumption - mahinhin and polite. most of them can be described in one word, "nice."
what I love best about woodrose is yung one mentor per student nila na ginagawa... pagpasok mo plang, you will be introduced or approached ata by your mentor who you can talk to all throughout your stay in the school... and u can talk about anything...
that I think is cool cuz high school girls definitely need guidance during their teenage years... simulan habang bata pa so they grow up to be mature ladies
uh yes it is and we're talking about high school here last I checkOriginally Posted by prinsesa_ako
kinder and elementary, coed... but like I said ICA Manila HIGH SCHOOL [I think this thread reads BEST EXCLUSIVE HS FOR GIRLS... am I correct?] are exclusive for girls
glad I straightened that out
I studied at ASSUMPTION MAKATI and I also spent most of my school years at ST. PAUL-PARAÑAQUE. So here's my take...
1. ASSUMPTION MAKATI/ANTIPOLO - Indeed, Assumption brought out the best in me. It's true...most girls who study here are groomed to be powerful wives like Maricris Cardenas-Zobel, Sofia Zobel-Elizalde, Sandy Prieto-Romualdez, Liaa Cojuangco-Bautista, Lizette Banzon-Cojuangco, Baby Serrano-Araneta, Bettina Araneta-Aboitiz, Vicky Fernandez-Zubiri, Gina Africa-Aboitiz, etc...all these ladies graduated from Assumption. Furthermore, most students here are mestizas. They're also quite finicky when it comes to choosing their spouses...What can I say?...They just want the best.
2. WOODROSE/POVEDA - Good schools. Same as Assumption. Most of my classmates in college came from Woodrose and Poveda and we get along well. Students here have really good breeding. Mestiza students also.
3. ICA GREENHILLS - The best chinese school for girls! The students here are the future business women and successful entrepreneurs in our country like Robina Gokongwei-Pe, Bernardine Siy, Marcia Gokongwei-Sy, Angeline Ng-Tan, Lisa Gokongwei-Cheng, Faith Gokongwei-Lim, etc...all successful alumnae of ICA. Very smart ladies.
4. ST. SCHO - The students here are just fine. I admire St. Scho for inculcating social awareness and responsibility in the students and encouraging the students to be cognizant in what's happening in our country and taking part in trying to improve the welfare of our fellowmen which is lacking in ASSUMPTION, POVEDA, WOODROSE, and ICA. Albeit the curriculum is deteriorating gradually, it's still a good school particularly in high school. The administration though should be more picky in choosing students especially in the college department. Too bad, I heard from the grapevine that students are engaging in girl to girl relationships.
5. MIRIAM COLLEGE - Basically the same as St. Scho.
5. ST. PAUL - PARAÑAQUE - If I would be given the chance to choose a school when I was younger, I would definitely NOT choose St. Paul - Parañaque. Why? because I did not learn anything and the location is not that nice (it's very near the wet market). If St. Scho tolerates girl-to-girl relationships, St. Paul Parañaque encourages it. I even know one female teacher who had a relationship with one student which is totally disgusting! They even force the senior high school students during my time to take that CAT/ACP Training which aggravated the perennial predicament of that school! I'm sorry for being so candid and I'm not trying to malign the school but that was what I experienced, saw, and felt.
I don't know for the other St. Paul Schools though but I heard that St. Paul Pasig is quite good in terms of academics and the location is nice.
6. STA. ISABEL/LA CONSOLACION/LA CONCORDIA/HOLY SPIRIT/etc... - I don't have ample knowledge about these schools so I better not comment. Sorry...
I hope that helps...so, parents out there, choose your childrens' schools wisely!
POVEDA IS THE BOMB.... "go poveda your the bomb"
[B]MIRIAM COLLEGE HIGH SCHOOL no doubt. quality education, holistic. true.. very conservative during my time but now i think not so anymore. i mean at least the prom is not at the cafeteria anymore.
may na-prove lang ako... madami nag-chchat from st. scholastica. enough said. haha
Oh of course I'll say Poveda (biased eh! HAHA!) I like the personalities of people I've met from Assumption San Lo and St. Paul. They're classy and smart too!
But I wouldn't necessarily say those three schools I've mentioned are the best private girls' schools. Kailangan ng research para 'dyan
i'm from poveda... hehe but seriously, relax. don't bash sleek because he/she expressed his/her own opinion. yun yung gusto niya sabihin eh. go ahead and say that povedans are shallow and insecure, but don't freak out on people who don't share the same opinion as you. respeto langOriginally Posted by buracho99
Colegio de Sta. Rosa Makati. =)
kinder: yes, absolutely no homework. at home the child just watches tv, plays with toys, or whatever she/her parents want her to doOriginally Posted by dRAg_rAcEr1
gradeschool: if you are born smart, there is little studying required at home. there are tests, and the occassional homework, but it's quite easy to pass if the child is generally intelligent.
high school: this is the time when you either shine or you don't. math starts getting harder, spanish classes start getting serious, and many fail various sciences classes (chemistry and physics). if the girl has time management skills and "tiyaga", kayang kaya pumasa.
generally no homework but the usuals are: papers, group works, Individual Work (dapat for school pero let's face it... no one really does that in school. people take it home and do research/a bulk of the work there), many quizzes and session tests, readings, etc. take up a lot of time. povedans are generally active in at least one extra curricular which also takes time.
poveda is a good choice for a school if you want your kid to enjoy her early/teenage years but also learn a lot about time management and "shutting up and just doing the damn work" -especially in high school. but if you want your kid to be more on the book-smart side where you want her to stay indoors most of the time, then perhaps a science high school would be better suited for her. pwede rin poveda but the homework is usually creative and not always heavy on the science/math.
i heard MIRIAM is one of the best schools.... i noticed studnts there are smart, respectful and polite...
I think ICA and Poveda have a slight edge in one aspect, which is foreign language. ICA teaches Chinese, and Poveda teaches Spanish. I'm not sure if any other exclusive girls' schools teach foreign languages. I think it's an advantage because most schools in other countries, especially USA, prefer students who studied 3-4 yrs of a foreign language. Most of the time, Filipino isn't considered. They usually mean French, Italian, German, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Danish, and the like.
st. scho manila the best!!!!!!!!
st scho astig!
