    Smile Schools with PAASCU 5-YEAR ACCREDITATION are the BEST??

    Hello fellow PEXters! I'm a parent who's searching for a good PRIVATE school for my young relatives. I been having a difficult time finding the right one though.

    Do any of you guys know the list of ALL the schools in the Philippines with a PAASCU 5-YEAR ACCREDITATION? From what I've heard, there's only 3, namely: Ateneo, La Salle, and Xavier School, but I might be wrong.

    But please, this is simply only a guide though.. I'm not saying that I'm only going to choose between schools that has a 5-year accreditation and forget other good schools. It's only a guide and I'm continuously searching for more info and the info here would greatly help!

    Btw, please also post your responses on my other thread: Is XAVIER really the best private HS in the Philippines? All your feedback would really be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    my sister's a teacher. and she said that when PAASCU visits the school every 5 years or more, it means that the school is performing well. Maganda na ang patakbo.

    in my school, CSR Rockwell we are on level II and the PAASCU visited us 5 years ago and will come back maybe next year. my school has been performing well since its last visit until now. I was just in 5th grade when we reached level II, I am graduating now and in 2009 they'll come back again for another evaluation

    Common sense lang. How can DLSU have the best grade school and high school in the country when many of its products are not that bright? They don't even excel in academics. Obvious naman. Baka sports, pwede pa.

    Best?

    Patunayan mo nga.

    Alam naman nating lahat na by levels din ang accreditation ng PAASCU sa grade school at high school.

    La Salle Greenhills' claims on its websites do not prove that it is the best, especially since we all know that accreditation, even at the GS and HS level, is by Level (I, II, III, etc.)

    Why don't you read more on accreditation and actually learn something?

    I know a lot of LSGH grads who do it well. Hindi lang sila nakikilala. Mostly naman ang mga nakikilala natin ay yung mga lumalabas sa TV, etc.

    Ano ba ang criteria ng PAASCU? If you think LSGH doesn't deserve its accreditation, e di flawed ito? Maybe pagdating sa ibang areas like sa faculty, curriculum ay angat sila. Baka lang. Let's be open to other possibilities.

    BTW. Correct me if I'm wrong. Alam ko pati St. Theresa's College in QC nabigyan din ng 7-year accreditation ng PAASCU.

    then what school do you think deserves to be called 'best in your country?i don't have to read more about 'accreditation'.you do your reading and learn everything that needs to be learned,buy a desk,place it at the entrance door at the paascu building,write 'start here' using an art paper and begin answering inquiries
    ps-don't forget to bring bottled water

    Question Confused

    Hello! Sorry if I sound n00bish here pero I'm really confused with the entire accreditation process. I've heard a lot about it pero ang gulo sobra. So I really want to ask the ff. questions so as to clarify this issue once and for all not just for me but for the rest as well.

    1. Please define 5-YEAR ACCREDITATION. How does the process work? So if you're accredited 5 times in a row does that already mean the "highly respected" 5-YEAR ACCREDITATION?

    2. Please define LEVEL IV ACCREDITATION.

    3. I'm really confused with this one. What is the DIFFERENCE between 5-YEAR ACCREDITATION and LEVEL IV ACCREDITATION?

    4. If I look in Wikipedia (and other websites), why is it that I always see high school levels (ex: la salle greenhills) ONLY getting the former "year-type" accreditation like the 4-year accreditation, 5-year accreditation, etc.? And if I look at college levels (ex: ateneo de manila university), why is it that I always see the latter ONLY getting the "level-type" accreditation like the Level III, level IV accreditation?

    5. So if a school has been given 5-YEAR or 7-YEAR ACCREDITATION, does that mean it also received a LEVEL IV ACCREDITATION? For instance, La Salle Greenhills has received a "7-year accreditation", does that also mean it also received the "LEVEL IV accreditation?"

    Hopefully, someone can shed light on this confusing but very important matter. Thanks!

    The school that deserves to be called the best in the country depends on the criteria used for determining what is "best."

    As regards accreditation, again, even a cursory examination of PAASCU's materials (on its website, for starters) shows that even grade school and high school programs are evaluated using levels, which are then awarded for a number of years. In short, the number of years a level is awarded is independent, although it may be related to, the level awarded.

    bosyky10, this should address some of your concerns.

    ayos PAASCU haven't heard the initials in a very long time it brings back memories from my gradeschool unfortunately i don't want to mention the name of my gradeschool. I'am sure marami iba school na accredited ng PAASCU.

    O, sila daw ang may highest accreditation level.

    AHS is now Level III accredited

    date posted: 2009-01-07 06:48:54


    The Ateneo de Manila High School was recently granted Level III accredited status, the highest level for basic education units, by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU).

    The Level III accreditation grants the Ateneo High School “Full curricular autonomy, including the authority to innovate without need for prior approval provided that the concerned DepEd Regional Office is duly informed” and “Full autonomy including freedom from visitation, inspection and/or supervision by DepEd supervisory personnel or representatives for the duration of its Level III accredited status.”

    The AHS became eligible to apply for Level III status after being granted a second clean re-accreditation when the PAASCU conducted a visit last October 2007. The level III accreditation is valid until November 2012.

    The Level III status acknowledges that the Ateneo de Manila High School has a reasonably high standard of instruction and a well developed mechanism for improving and upgrading its own curriculum. It recognizes the creditable performance of AHS teachers that promote effectiveness of teaching and learning. It also acknowledges the high level of achievement and performance of students in both academic and co-curricular activities and lauds a highly visible community outreach program. The Level III status also recognizes the strong faculty and staff development tradition.

    Fr. Raymund-Benedict Q. Hizon, SJ, AHS principal, expressed his deep gratitude to the entire high school community especially to Fr. Eli Y. Lumbo, S.J., Mr. Leonardo L. Balmaceda Jr., Mr. Bernie C. Santos, Ms. Joy T. Calleja, Mr. Renato N. Carvajal, Mrs. Esperanza J. Chee Kee, Mrs. Socorro E. Escarez, Mr. Jim Ryan G. Fallorina, Mrs. Ester V. Frago, Mr. Gabriel F. Mallillin, Mr. Noel P. Miranda, Mr. Jose Gerardo Q. Pavia, Mrs. Ma. Margarita M. Pavia and Mrs. Elizabeth R. Peralejo who worked with him for the preparation of the 200-page narrative report that served as the AHS’ application for Level III status.

    With this accreditation, the whole high school community looks forward to greater improvements in the programs and facilities of the school.
