Open High School Program (OHSP)

The Republic Act No. 10665 or The Open High School System Act provided the mandate to the Department of Education to create Open High School Program. The law aims to broaden access of Filipino learners to relevant quality education through the employment of an alternative secondary education program that will enable the youth to overcome personal, geographical, socioeconomic, and physical constraints, to encourage them to complete secondary education. The Iloilo National High School is known for its “Schools-Within-A-School” Program which gives Filipino learners opportunities to appreciate their existence and discover themselves by providing different curricular offerings that hone their potential in the best way possible. This is our way of answering the national call for “no learner is left behind” and the global call for “Education for All”. The Open High School Program follows the existing regular curriculum of the Department of Education. What makes it different from the rest of the Special Programs of Iloilo National High School is the mode of delivery of instruction and the time of learning of learners. Instruction is delivered through Distance Education in which learners are provided with either a printed or a digital copy of Self-Learning Modules. Online consultation is set to facilitate learning for those who have access to gadgets and an internet connection. To assess the progress of the learners, a limited face-to-face schedule is spent for assessment to be administered by the OHSP teachers. Learners are given 4 months for the Junior High School and 2 months for the Senior High School scheduled learning to help them adjust to the Self-Learning period or independent learning for the next quarter/s. This system serves as the transition period for OHSP learners. During this period, learners will have to follow a structured schedule and meet their teachers regularly. After the transition period, learners will then be given the opportunity to learn at their own pace. At the beginning of the school year, the learners will sign a contract and agreement on the following is stated: *The school’s expectations of the learner; *The school’s expectations of the parent/ guardian; and *The learning modules for coverage and the target date of completion.
