  1. Rationale

The Revised Guidelines on Promotion, Probation and Graduation of PSHS Students, which was approved by the PSHSS Board of Trustees in May 9, 2003, is hereby amended to better ensure quality standards in evaluating and assessing student performance.  The amendments shall also be a step to further harmonize the academic standards throughout the PSHS campuses nationwide and foster a greater understanding by the students of the rules and regulations governing their scholarship status.

  1. Policy

The desired characteristics of the PSHS scholar, as mentioned in the PSHS Vision, “…scientific mind, passion for excellence, dedicated to the service of country, and committed to the pursuit of truth”, if to be molded in the character of the scholars with the help of the school, the faculty and staff have to have nurturing characteristics themselves, and the school shall have programs that will see to it that the students fully develop their potential and become responsible citizens of the country and leaders for the future.

Needs of individual students differ, thus a well-rounded curriculum as well as various programs will have to be in place in order to address these needs.  Once these programs are in place, and the students are given every opportunity to adjust to the rigorous requirements for the scholarship provided them, the scholars are thus expected to perform according to expectations, both academically and behaviorally.
