Junior High School (1928)

Educational Delivery

Complementing Face-to-Face Instruction with Online Learning

UST Cloud Campus

The UST Junior High School adopts brain-based education as its educational delivery framework.

Brain-Based Education (BBE) is the purposeful engagement of strategies based on principles derived from solid scientific research.

BBE emphasizes how the brain learns naturally and is based on what we currently know about the actual structure and function of the human brain at varying developmental stages. Using the latest neural research, educational techniques that are brain-friendly provide a biologically driven framework for creating effective instruction (Wilson, 2001).

History

An integral part of the University of Santo Tomas, founded by Archbishop Miguel de Benavides, O.P., the University supervised the General Secondary Education Program in the Philippine Islands during the Spanish period.

The UST Junior High School (UST-JHS) was formally founded in 1928 by Rev. Fr. Silvestre Sancho, O.P. the Dean of the College of Education as a laboratory school for student teachers, opening its doors to 110 male students on June 6, 1928 with Fr. Sancho as Director and Dr. Rafael Acosta as Principal. The JHS was given recognition by the Philippine Government as a Day General Secondary School on June 30, 1929. In 1930, the Girls’ High School Department was established with Dr. Mercedes Grau-Santamaria as its Principal. It was reorganized in 1938 with the Girls’ and Boys’ High School departments integrated under a central administration with Fr. Tomaz Martinez as Director and Dr. Bienvenido Sison, General Principal. With the founding of the UST Education High School in 1950 as the laboratory school of the College of Education, UST High School became an independent department of the University. The JHS was granted recognition in 1951 by the Bureau of Private Education as a school offering complete secondary education with vocational subjects. In 1952, it was transferred to the former Medicine Building that came to be known as the Old UST High School Building in 1957. Fr. Isidro Katigbak, O.P. became the first Filipino Director of the High School. The Philosopher, Fr. Manuel Piñon succeeded in 1959 after the old building was gutted down by flames on June 2, 1975. Before the construction of a new building in its present site, classes were temporarily held at the Fathers’ residence and the UST Central Seminary. The new building named Benavides building was inaugurated on June 4, 1976, with its administration restructured to include the Office of the Regent. Fr. Maximillano Rebolio, O.P. became its first father regent. From thence onwards the Dominican priests assigned to the UST high school have served as either director or regent or his assistant. The JHS adopted a co-educational policy in 1992 integrating the boys and the girls’ sessions into one heterogeneous class. It underwent curricular experimentation leading up to an implementation of a more innovative and upgraded secondary education curriculum in the school year 2002-2003.

The UST Junior High School was accredited Level 1 by PAASCU in November 2010.
