The school strives to develop responsible citizens by reinforcing respect for self and for others.|
The institutional values unite the school populace and its stakeholders through the thrusts that lead the community towards the achievement of its vision and mission. The school’s core values are:
|The Quantum Academy is a private college preparatory school whose primary aim is to meet the educational needs of students from pre-school to high school that will prepare them for admission in leading colleges and universities, responsible leadership and integration into society, and successful careers across regions in the Philippines and in other parts of the world.|
|Government Recognitions were given to the school: The Pre-school Government Recognition was granted in 2002, Grade School in 2005 and the High School in 2008.|
|The Quantum Academy started humbly with an initial number of eight students, two teachers, and settled in a rented space in Mejorada Building along Leon Llido Street – a real testimony of “from few to plenty”, population wise. The school today has over 600 pupils and students in pre-school, grade school, and high school, 30 teachers, 20 non-teaching staff and administrators.|
The school language and medium of instruction in major academic subjects is English. There are subjects using Filipino language but in here, may also accommodate non-Filipino speakers through bilingualism. These subjects also serve as avenues for learning Filipino as a Foreign Language.
Parents are requested to encourage their children to practice speaking English at home so they will form the habit and the skills for oral English communication proving the statement that "practice makes perfect". Although observation showed that many students, especially those whose language at home is not English, could hardly follow the policy on English speaking in school.
Academics and Instruction
In the succeeding years of growth and development, The Quantum Academy has shown a record of stability. Its reputation speaks of itself by becoming an institution with a child-centered curriculum, focusing on innovative learning with the following aspects: Mathematics, Science, Reading, Social Studies, and Languages. These subject areas have committed teacher-experts who are dedicated and are fully aware of the time on task policy of the DepED to teach and help students and can render service beyond expectations for the welfare of the school and the community.
With this, a scheme has also been set by the administration for teachers, not only in terms of academic and professional programs but also for formation techniques namely: spiritual, social, and personal development.
Yearly contested programs involve the school to be consistent winners in different prestigious academic and non-academic contests and have been showing outstanding performance in the local, national and international assessments and evaluations. Contrary to this fact though, the school refuses to believe that winning in competitions joined by some chosen students is the true measurement of quality education. The Quantum Academy believes that quality education evolves in teaching and practicing the knowledge through hands-on in basic skills, academics and technical expertise coupled with discipline or valued citizenship. Quantum emphasizes on the processing of knowledge, through evaluation using motivation, inspiration, visionary ambitions, creativity, risk, ability to bounce back from failure, and motivation. These skills are associated with understanding the value of knowledge which will help the students prepare for life, work, globalization, and rapid technological advancements. The school believes that students should thoroughly engage in the learning process for real achievements to take place and the student's chance to excel will be rewarding to increase self-confidence and self-realization. The best measurement of the quality of Quantum's grade school and high school education is how well the school has prepared them for college and how successful they will become in the real world of life and work.
The school looks into the reward system and tries to be fair enough to give opportunities for intellectually gifted students. It also provides avenues for the development of mainstream and regular students. Special programs for academic remediation are also devised to help academically struggling students. Those who excel in co-curricular activities benefit a lot from student activities. They are given a bigger chance to exhibit their skills to further their development in different areas like in visual arts, performing arts, media arts, sports, campus journalism, and leadership. School clubs give student the opportunities to discover and develop their creativity and potentials.
