Junior High School

The José Rizal University Junior High School is a hub of excellent secondary education that aims to develop critical and analytical thinking as well as exceptional communication and social skills while instilling Rizalian values among its students.

Students are given a good understanding of concepts such as representative government, national sovereignty, and the Filipino way of life. Students also develop vocational and technological proficiency and efficiency.

Junior High School Curriculum

The Junior High School offers the four-year secondary curriculum as approved by the Department of Education (DepEd) and Level III accredited by Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation (PACUCOA), and modified to suit the global educational policies and priorities of JRU Junior High School. Junior High School classes are conducted for 80 minutes each for English, Math, Science and Business Technology 3 and 4 and 40 minutes each for the rest of other subjects.

English is used as the medium of instruction in all subjects except Filipino. It is the University’s belief that complete familiarity with the English language is critical to a more effective social and economic role of the child. The Junior High School is very conscious of the importance of a good command of the English language in secondary education and has taken the option of shortening the four years of Character Education into the first two years and devoting the class time saved into additional English subjects. In addition, the Junior High School Division initiated steps in improving our subjects by including the Technology Enabled Materials (TEM) in teaching all our subjects.
