SIXTEEN out of the 85 graduating Grade 12 students of Philippine Science High School (PSHS)-Calabarzon Region Campus in Batangas City received study offers in colleges and universities abroad.

According to campus director Dr. Jose Andaya, the PSHS in Batangas makes activities that help students realize the importance and benefits of studying in PSHS and consequently making them achievers.

These activities include, but not limited to (1) inviting well-known professionals in STEM during their career orientations and school programs so that speakers can inspire the students; (2) exposing students to the world of STEM during their educational field trips, Science Internship Program (SIP), and Service, Creativity, and Leadership Enhancement (Scale) Programs; (3) hiring highly qualified teachers who can motivate students to focus on their chosen careers; and (4) collaborating with organizations and laboratories so that students can use their facilities and online resources for free.

“With these activities, our students become achievers and fulfill their dreams,” Andaya said.
