HIGH SCHOOL

<#Text#>   <#Text#>

In The Fisher Valley College, High School is a part of a 10-year compulsory education which runs for 4 years after the 6 years education for grade school. The levels for high school are usually identified as:

First Year

Second Year
Third Year
Fourth Year

And informally identified by counterpart names in college:

Freshman
Sophomore
Junior
Senior

Children normally enter high school from age 12 or 13 and complete it when they reach age 15 or 16. Everyone who finishes high school normally receives a high school diploma by participating in a graduation ceremony and a transcript of records (DepEd Form 137-A). Aside from a few exceptions granted by law, a high school diploma is a requirement in entering college/university.

Classes in the Philippines start in June and end in March with a recognition ceremony (for First Year to Third Year), and a graduation ceremony (for graduating Fourth Year students).

By the year 2011, the government announced that the Philippines will soon be upgrading its education by adopting the K-12 system. The affected students are yet to be clarified.
