La Salle Green Hills (LSGH) transitions into coeducational in all grades beginning school year 2021-2022.
The 60-year-old private Catholic school has been exclusive for boys and young gentlemen since its establishment in 1959. Today, it adapts to the changing landscape of education as it follows the footsteps of all other 15 La Salle Schools in the Philippines.
In a letter addressed to the Lasallian community, LSGH principal Bro. Alexander Ervin Diaz, FSC, said that the decision was based on several aspects, one of which is the promotion of equal access to quality Lasallian education for all genders.
“The School has since moved to be inclusive in accommodating deaf students and even adult learners and students with special needs. The introduction of a coed system in the basic education would be a step towards expanding our inclusivity,” he said.
LSGH believes that the new learning environment allows for a more diverse yet natural development.
“Cocurricular activities will be more varied, classroom learning behaviors will be enhanced, a new school culture will emerge with an improved mixed-gender perspective and an overall strengthening to the already solid foundation that is uniquely LSGH,” he added.
LSGH first opened its doors to include female learners for senior high school in school year 2020-2021.
Prior to the transition, LSGH stood as the only remaining exclusive boys’ school of the De La Salle Brothers in the Philippines.
