The San Juan City Science High School boosted a close-to-perfection staging of the “Soft Opening” of classes initiated in a division-wide scope by the Schools Division Office (SDO) which is intended to iron out possible glitches in the official opening of classes on June 03, 2019 for the school year 2019-2020.

[endif]--The Dry Run revealed minimal identified problems and perennial scenario that greeted the learners and teachers like the overlapping schedule of teachers, duplication of subjects, uneven distribution of loads, facility preparations and among others.

“The Soft Opening of classes is designed to minimize if not to eradicate glitches that are usually experienced by most schools on the opening of classes. This way, we are able to address these problems so that we could provide our students a healthy and worry-free classroom experience”, said Dr. Alejandro G. Ibañez, OIC-SDS, when asked about the rationale of this undertaking.

The San Juan City Science High School or “JuanSci” is one of the three additional schools in the division which is now operating in an independent status. Likewise, the responsibility to run the school was lodged to Dr. Jay F. Macasieb, Officer-In-Charge, and concurrent Division Research Coordinator who initially piloted the smooth operation of the school during the Dry Run process. He is assisted by the School Academic Coordinator, Mr. Hernan L. Apurada, who oversaw the school’s systems and processes long before that challenging day.

The budding school is bound to transfer to its new home in Barangay St. Joseph before July of this year following the completion of the state-of-the-art facilities and equipment being installed through the generous support of the Local Government Unit (LGU) headed by the beloved Mayor, Madam Guia G. Gomez, who didn’t stop and will not stop until the best and the brightest San Juaneños are given a school building that is fit for them.

Meanwhile, the Soft Opening of all Elementary and Secondary schools in the Division of San Juan City went well as planned as a result of the collaborative supervision and cooperation of all LGU officials, SDO officials, school heads, teachers and other school personnel, as well as the support of the parents and other stakeholders in the community.
