SURVEY EXECUTIVE’S REPORT
on the
2005 SECOND INSTITUTIONAL SELF-RESURVEY

Introduction

     This survey executive’s report is made up of three parts, a) brief history of SMUHS/SHS department’s quest for quality and relevant education through PAASCU Accreditation. b) significant development made by the department within the 5-year period after the first formal self re-survey together with the best features and recommendations of the different area groups and c) composition and program of activities of the 2005 Institutional self-re-survey staff.

 
    A. Brief History of the SMUHS/SHS Department’s Quest for Accredited Status

     The first preliminary institutional self-survey of the High School Department officially started on November 22, 1979 simultaneously with the Elementary Department and the three College programs with the formal organization of the preliminary self-survey staff. It ended on July 30, 1980 when all area reports were submitted to the Survey Executive for collation and finalization.

     On September 23, 1980, the completed Preliminary Institutional Self-Survey Report was submitted to the office of the PAASCU President with a formal request for an official visit by an accrediting team.

     On December 5, 1980, the PAASCU office confirmed the Preliminary survey of the High School Department on January 14-15, 1981.

     On January 5, 1981, a telegram was received by the College President from PAASCU office confirming the preliminary surveys of the three college programs and the Elementary Department on January 12-13, 1981, but not of the High School Department.

     Later, the PAASCU office confirmed the administration of the school that the date of the preliminary visit of the High School is set at some future dates. Thus, from 1981 to 1985, the high school continued to improve its high school services. But its dream to be have an accredited status from PAASCU remained.

     Inspired by the accreditation of the Elementary Department in April 1985, the High School self-survey team decided to give itself another fresh start as it prepared for the preliminary self-survey of its various educational services and programs. In 1987, SMC High School Department prepared and submitted its Self-survey book report to the PAASCU.

     On February 8-10, 1988, the High School Department underwent the preliminary survey by the following PAASCU accreditors:

     1.   Sr. Puritaatongay, DC
           Principal, Colegio de la Immaculada Concepcion
           Cebu City

     2.   Mr. Isabelo Chavez
           Associate Director
           Notre Dame of Greater Manila
           Kalookan City

     Four months later, two copies of the PAASCU’s official report prepared by the preliminary survey team that visited and surveyed the High School Department on February 8-10, 1988 were received by the President of the college. With the report was a letter from the PAASCU President informing the High School Department of PAASCU’s Board unanimous agreement that Saint Mary's College - High School Department be made eligible for Level 1 and to apply for a formal survey after two years provided that the recommendations of the team shall have been substantially implemented.

     The administration, faculty and staff of the High School Department undertook various measures for the implementation of the recommendations given by the preliminary survey team at the same time strengthening the weak areas by its self-survey groups.

     When the school had substantially implemented the recommendations made by the preliminary survey team, it underwent preparations for the PAASCU Consultancy Visit.

     On March 1, 1993, PAASCU sent a consultancy visiting team to Saint Mary’s College High School Department. The consultancy visiting team was headed by Dr. Isabelo Chavez, Assistant Director for Academics of Notre Dame of Greater Manila and Mr, Alex Lazo, Head, High School Guidance of San Beda College, Manila as member.

     Based on the consultancy visit results, the team recommended that Saint Mary’s College High School Department be allowed to have its first formal visit one year after receipt of this report.

     Saint Mary’s College High School Department went into preparations for the First Formal visit. On September 11-12, 1995, Saint Mary’s University High School Department underwent its first formal PAASCU visit. The following served as the PAASCU accreditors:

The results received from the PAASCU accreditors said that SMU HS would enjoy Level 2 accreditation for the next three years. This inspired the HS Marian community to move on further and continue improving its educational services for the betterment of its faculty and staff and most importantly its students.

After three years of enjoying Level 2, SMU High School worked for its documents for the First Formal Resurvey in 1999. On October 18-19, 1999 SMU High School had the following as visiting accreditors.

     Before SY 1999-2000 ended, the PAASCU report received that the SMU High School passed the First Formal Resurvey (Level 2 Reaccredited) except that the Area on Instruction has to submit a progress report. In 2003, the Progress Report in the Area for Instruction was submitted.

  1. SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENTS MADE BY THE SCHOOL AFTER 1999 RESURVEY TOGETHER WITH THE BEST FEATURES AND RECOMMENDATIONS IN THE DIFFERENT AREAS
     Because PAASCU accreditation gives objective evaluation of a school’s educational program and services, SMU High School had continued working to improve its services in the nine areas being assessed by the PAASCU.

Now, SMU has two high school programs that are still similar to the two curricula named, namely: SMU HS (following the RBEC – Revised Basic Education Curriculum) and SMU Science High School (following DECS Order No. 69, s. 1993).
