Title: DLSU Canlubang Laguana
Post by: samatm on April 15, 2011, 07:00:33 PM
Hey does anyone know anything about this school.    It looks very nice and must be very expensive.   Does anyone know how much tuition is for  Highschool kids?


Their website appears to be down and I couldn\'t find much info Googling..

The site works, but many of the links are dead. Try phoning them.

When we were about to move to the PI last year my wife had arranged to put our daughter in Noblesse International school in Angeles, reputedly an excellent establishment.

 Just weeks before start of school I asked her what the price was, as she had neglected to check. Her excuse was that the web site was down...... ???

 A quick phone call informed us they wanted US$14,000 a year..................   :o :o :o

We used Westfield\'s International School eventually, which is about 110,000 piso a year. Much less painful.  ;D

After putting up with local private schools for the last 4 years we have decided to take our 14 year old out completely so he can study for his IGCSE`s and A levels at home..
The cost works out about the same as a private school here and he can take his exams in Manila.

Capt,

About the best I can say is that they are the best of a bad bunch..Having said that,Im not going to write half a page complaining and whining about the schools here..The important thing is that I have found what I think is a far better option for the kids..Home study.
The main reason Im taking him out is because I want him to study towards internationally renowned qualifications (British IGCSE`s) with materials and tutor support via NEC http://www.nec.ac.uk/index-lsn-2.html..
My daughter will continue at VDT for another year and after that, if she wants she can do the same.. BTW..
The Tirol (VDT)kids will soon be moving to the new school building near the Wisdom school.
Cheers,
Fred.

The NEC information is very interesting. In the UK I would always take 1 or 2 evening classes every year, I don\'t believe it is possible to stop learning even at my age. Maybe I will have a go at adding to my qualifications just for the hell of it  ;D

Bing is spending a lot of time going through the Oxford English dictionary picking out words to teach her younger Nieces and Nephews, particularly the pronunciation, so maybe there is something there for her.

Can all of the subject exams be taken in Manila?

Colin.

I contacted the headmaster at the British school in Manila and he tells me that in principle my son can take his exams there and they say they will help us all they can..
Not sure yet if he will be able to take his A levels there or not as the Brit school seem to study towards an international baccalaureate instead .
I dont think NEC have a study course for that..

I finally was able to contact DLSU Canalubang and they said the cost was approximately 80K / year  + expenses of  books, uniform, transpo, food, projects etc..   so even it up to 100K Pesos per year.
