High School

  

GNC Montessori Program is a Hybrid Program in High School that makes use of the Dynamic Learning Program (DLP) aimed at improving academic performance of the students.  This process involves learning by doing and holding simultaneous classes for the same subject on the same year level.  The program is differentiated and target-oriented for effective learning under multiple socio-economic and cultural constraints.  It synthesizes classical and modern theories for use in real life situations.  It mixes the features of traditional methods, individual instruction, distance education, and the Montessori philosophy, and revives classical approaches such as the no-homework policy.
