    Here is the URL for SU High School:

    School of Basic Education

    Phone Number: (63)(35) 422-6002

    It is not an IB curriculum but rather an "enriched" version of the Philippine Dept. of Education's Secondary curriculum. Cebu International School in Cebu City claims to be the only International Baccalaureate school in the Visayas and Mindanao regions. Their website mentions 7 schools nationwide accredited to teach IB, I assume the rest are in Luzon. You can check them out here: coverpage

    Silliman University is generally ranked about #5 among **Universities** nationwide. What that means for the high school, I am not sure. The "School of Basic Education" which houses the Early Childhood, Elementary and High Schools is largely comprised of the children of the University's faculty and staff--I was told 60% are university employee children and roughly 20 to 25% are foreigner/foreigner-mixed students. (Those numbers were quoted to me by the Director of the Early Childhood Program but probably are similar for the High School.)

    Hopefully some Sillimanians can enlighten us with their direct experience!

    Also Grindven, have you researched Online/Home School IB programs? If so, please share!

    The one near El Camino Blanco is Royal Oaks. It has Pre-K through high school.

    I thought the Montessori School did not extend through high school though??

    Neither have IB programs.

    Well, dear Rhoody, what do you suggest for people living here ? Forget Manila
    and international (..?) standards. We plan to relocate in Dumaguete during September. Our daughter is 10 years old, 5th grade to St. Patrick, private school in Quezon City.

    For the Silliman elementary, some of you say Yes, some say No.. For other
    schools, as Royal Oaks, another post said Yes but without any additional info. :confused:

    I am against any school for girls only. So, what we will do ? :mad:

    I don't possess the inestimable wisdom of Sir Rhoody ;-), however, if you will permit me I will make a suggestion:

    Visit these schools and interview their directors AND the individual teachers your student(s) would be assigned too. I think one 45 minute or so visit to each will give you a good feel as to which is right for your individual student.

    In alphabetical order:

    Cittadini
    Don Bosco
    Holy Cross
    Silliman
    Southdale

    I don't think any one school is clearly the best for all students. I think you will have to find the right school for your student.

    Supplementation at home and a place like Kumon is also good. By the way, I have no direct experience with Kumon so I am not endorsing them, but I will say that I have yet to hear negative reviews of them which says something in itself.

    Huh! International School? This must be a joke. International or not international school really doesn't matter. What matters is that if your student is smart enough to study hard, read a lot, do something that is productive and get a good grades without cheating. Then you can be successful.

    .... unless "domestic helper" and nurse abroad are enough for your kids...
    Domestic helper and nurse - these are the students who are failing because they did not study hard not because their school is not international standard. Jeeesh!

    well, if you get your pink glasses off, you will find out after researching that NO Single course in Dumaguete has any accreditation outside the Philippines.

    no matter how hard and honest you study.

    Don't get emotional about my statement, this are the simple facts.
