Ever imagine going to Ateneo... for high school? Probably not, since we all know that AHS has always been an all-boys school. But just today, Ateneo announces on its official website that they will be opening admission to 300 more students–both boys and girls—apart from the incoming Grade 11 boys from Ateneo Junior High.

In a memo dated March 13, 2015, Ateneo de Manila University president Jose Ramon T. Villarin, SJ announced the opening of Senior High School for SY 2016-2017. If you're not familiar with the K-12 Basic Education Reform program, it breaks down the education program into 6 years of grade school and 6 years of high school. That means 4 years will be spent in Junior High (grades 7 to 10) and 2 years will be spent in Senior High (grades 11 and 12). This program is used by the United States, Canada, Turkey, South Korea, Australia, and now the Philippines.

We're quite curious about how this will pan out. This isn't the first coed high school ever, but it's definitely a first for an all-boys high school like Ateneo. They'll be posting application requirements and more information on their official website soon.
