To produce a conducive learning environment, Makati Hope adopts the Understanding by Design (UbD) framework in designing the curriculum. Our highly competent teachers are trained on the different instructional approaches, specifically, Differentiated Instruction. Moreover, Makati Hope has vastly improved its infrastructure such as the augmentation of the school library and laboratories.
These, alongside the implementation and continuous monitoring of instructional materials, have resulted in high student satisfaction, high acceptance rate in prestigious universities, and excellent performance in government examinations.
In line with the K to 12 education reform program of the Department of Education, the school took the challenge of being one of the few schools that implemented the K to 12 Senior High School (SHS) Program in SY 2015-2016. The school initially offered the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and Accountancy, Business and Management (ABM) strands under the academic track. To ensure that our students meet college-level standards, the school partnered with De La Salle University under the DLSU CONNECT Ed program for standardization of instruction, faculty deployment, certification of subjects and mentoring of SHS teachers.
The school will start offering the Humanities and Social Sciences (HUMSS) strand in SY 2017-2018.
