Junior High School (JHS)
Junior High School
An integral part of the education in Malayan Colleges Mindanao, A Mapúa School, is the holistic development of its learners, bringing the importance of freedom, reasoning, and community building to the fore. This necessitates an educational space that exposes learners to diversified backgrounds and varying perspectives and enables them to think and reason for themselves.
MCM Junior High School aims to equip students with essential competencies for Senior High School and tertiary education and to provide a quality education that is globally competitive and aligned with the international standards of education. The program purposes to achieve these by providing learners with opportunities to learn fundamental concepts at a higher degree of complexity and helping them develop an increasing degree of independence in applying knowledge, skills, and values learned.
The desired outcomes of the Grades 7 to 10 program are defined in terms of expectancies as articulated in the learning standards. In general terms, students are expected at the end of Grade 10 to demonstrate:
- Communicative competence;
- Think intelligently, critically, and creatively in life situations;
- Make informed and values-based decisions;
- Perform their civic duties;
- Use resources sustainably, and;
- Participate actively in artistic and cultural activities and in the promotion of wellness and lifelong fitness.
These general expectancies are expressed in specific terms in the form of content and performance standards.
The overall design of the Grades 7 to 10 curriculum follows the spiral approach across subjects by building on the same concepts developed in increasing complexity and sophistication starting from grade school.
MCM Junior High School students are also offered an optional supplementary program called MCM eTutor. It is an advising service extended to students to assist them in overcoming difficulties in learning. The MCM eTutor provides support and ensures that students during online classes are learning effectively. It also involves guided discussions, methodological support, and online learning motivation.

Once every week, students can attend synchronous problem-solving classes (other than the synchronous sessions in their regular classes). Students will be given a chance to raise questions and go on in-depth discussions on particular lessons with their teachers and their eTutor classmates.
