Maganda ba secondary education sa Letran?
Ariba Letran! buhayin ang ruisenores!
What has happened. Balita ko na ang konti na talaga ng population ng Elementary and High school. di tulad ng batch ko, 5 sections per year level. Bumabawi na lang daw ngayon sa college enrollment ang letran. Bakit kasi ginawang coed.
*by the way, pagsasamahin na sa iisang building ang elem at hs.
Bakit yung san beda very stable nag enrollment kahit nilipat ang campus sa rizal? Sa tingin ko parating may mali sa pamamalakad ng mg dominikano. Sbi ng dad, lolo at uncle ko noong araw daw nakikipagsabayan ang Letran sa Ateneo at La Salle di lang sa sports pati sa academics. Ang ganda daw ng Letran noon. Anu nangyari ngayon?
Guys, di ko alam kung tama bang dito ito ilagay but I just wanna ask if they are accepting second semester transferees? To be specific, sa Communication Arts. Thank you sa makakasagot.

Do you know that the site of Colegio San Agustin in Dasma Village was first offered to Letran by the Ayalas. The friars declined the offer for reasons I don't know.
"Commission on Higher Education NCR Director Catherine Casta√Īeda, Ph.D. discussed the K to 12 grading system and how to respond to its challenges while attaining quality assurance; the developments that are expected of higher education schools; and the requirements needed for a school to be considered as autonomous.
She gave her own insights and prediction regarding Letran, saying: "I see that you have good facilities in Communication, you have centers of development and centers of excellence, [therefore] Letran will become autonomous by 2020."
On the other hand, President France Marie Padiz of the Philippine Society for Quality did not find it necessary to elaborate on management since "Letran is already midway to quality." She shared some tips that would make organizations successful. After discussing the levels of quality service, she challenged Letran to continuously aim for a higher satisfaction rate among customers and stakeholders."
The market moved. Letran GS and HS did not -- at least, not in Metro Manila. When we eventually set up our branches, they were in Calamba, Laguna (which I hear is doing well, even in basic education) and in Abucay, Bataan.
Speaking of Greenhills, this was developed by Letran grads -- Francisco Ortigas and Vicente Madrigal (who were friends with one Manuel Luis Quezon). That was why Letran was given first dibs at setting up a grade school and high school where La Salle Greenhills is now. However, the Dominicans declined, ostensibly because they did not want to teach the sons of the rich. So that was how LSGH came to be.
Actually, I learned this story from a Dominican priest who used to be an official in Letran Manila and then headed up Letran Calamba. I don't know about that Ayala story, though.
You may ask, what about college in Letran Manila? Why is it that the population there is increasing while the basic education units' population is decreasing? Well, unlike the grade school and high school students, college students do not really have to be fussed over by parents (in terms of transportation and such). So it does not really matter that much if the Letran college department is in Intramuros or in Sampaloc. Students will still enroll in it if the courses are worthwhile. The very fact that the college population is rising is a testament to this. The I-Comm and IT units are doing well, the Psych and PoliSci departments also have their own draws, plus Letran has always been strong in business, particularly in Marketing. The newer courses like HRM, Food Tech, Nutrition, and Engineering have also been drawing a lot of interest from applicants and students, so I don't think the college department has a marketing problem at all.
So, if you are asking -- how then will we be able to shore up the population of Letran grade school and high school? My answer is simple. Move to a place with a high middle-class population density, and/or near a commercial area. Off-hand, that may be the QC area, or if we want to stay in Manila/Pasay area, in the Manila Bay reclamation area (if lots are even available here). That, plus give the grade school and high school something more than just a historical brand name. Make it stand for something -- science/mathematics, business-oriented, language-learning-focused, etc. I hear our Fil-Chi alumni were suggesting the the GS/HS add Mandarin to the curriculum, so there will be a reason why they will enroll their children there. I don't know what the focus should be, really. Just that there has to be a focus. If we do that, then maybe, just maybe, the GS/HS will be able to turn things around.
hi guys, newbie here:
just want some of your opinion, maganda ba ang accounting sa letran? kasi nursing grad ako and plano ko mag-aral ulit ng accounting. gusto ko sana yung school na hindi na ganun kahigpit but will still help me pass the boards. i'm still thinking letran or lyceum= para kasing maganda yung environment diyan sa intramuros; psba din kaya lang parang crowded na dun.
what do you guys think? hope to hear some of your opinions. thanks!
^sa nakikita ko from the past CPA board exams, unti-unting gumaganda ang Accountancy program ng Letran, dahil narin sa pinahigpit na retention policy ng CBAA.
October 2011 - First Timers: 50.00% / Repeaters: 15.00% / Overall: 30.56% (Natl. Passing Rate: 48.00%)
October 2012 - First Timers: 66.67% / Repeaters: 28.57% / Overall: 48.89% (Natl. Passing Rate: 47.78%)
^Arriba Letran CPAs!
Im a recent AC grad.. and sorry to tell you. maganda lang ang passing rate dahil may scholars. kung wala pong mga scholars na AC ang letran eh hindi ganun kataas passing rate natin. hindi pa rin masyadong maganda ang study culture ng mga students ng AC compared sa ibang schools. yung mga faculty iilan lang ang magagaling. kung ako sayo kung gusto mo ng worth it na eskwelahan dun ka sa maganda talaga reputation ng AC like UST UP beda plm tup dlsu etc.. kasi ikaw din mamomoroblema pag graduate ka na kasi hindi nila masyado priority ang mga letran ac grad.. wala ngang signing bonus ang mga laude ng letran sa sgv eh.. anyway, basta yan lang naman ang opinion ko.. dont settle for less kung pwede ka naman makapagAC sa mas magandang school pag dating sa AC..
and dont get me wrong my fellow letranista. im just stating an opinion. na walang bias kahit na letranista ako.. kasi iba talaga ang culture sa mga ac grads ng mga top performing schools..na sana maadopt na rin ng letran. at sana naman pinaparallel ng letran ang strategy nila sa ust-amv.. sa mga napakahaba na quizzes.. nakakawindang na exams.. mas mabuti nang maaga pa lang masanay na kesa sa review nganga. haha
^thank you sa mga opinions niyo, it will really help me decide on which school to enroll. and thanks tanyah for your honest and unbiased opinion. mahirap kasi magtransfer diyan sa UST, lalo na UP and I don't think pwede transferry sa PLM. San beda naman sobrang mahal 60k to 70k per sem, same with dlsu. I guess tingnan ko nalang sa psba or ue. thanks!!
