Students learn in a child-friendly, gender-sensitive, safe, and motivating environment.
Teachers facilitate learning and constantly nurture every learner.
Administrators and staff, as stewards of the institution, ensure an enabling and supportive environment for effective learning to happen.
Family, community, and other stakeholders are actively engaged and share responsibility for developing life-long learners.
BNHS-SHS TWITCHES DEFIANCE
On May 15, 2013, President Benigno S. Aquino, Jr. signed Republic Act No. 10533, the
Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013 (“K to 12 Program”). Section 2 of the law declares that “every graduate of basic education shall be an empowered individual who has learned, through a program that is rooted on sound educational principles and geared towards excellence, the foundations for learning throughout life, the competence to engage in work and be productive, the ability to coexist in fruitful harmony with local and global communities, the capability to engage in autonomous, creative, and critical thinking, and the capacity and willingness to transform others and one’s self.”
Beyond adversities, Department of Education adapted the new curriculum to elevate the educational status of the country. Though lack in preparation, the Department of Education (DepEd) allotted huge amount for the launching. It is through the concerted effort of all the geniuses in the academe, including the former Schools Division Superintendent, Ronaldo Pozon, EdD, who made it all possible.
In the City of Balanga, we are blessed for our very own, Armando C. Capili, EdD, the former principal of Bataan National High School to be chosen as be one of the members of National Speakers’ Bureau. DepEd Undersecretary Dina S. Ocampo chose crusaders who will disseminate information about the K to 12 program and we were lucky that the city has the pleasure to have one. Read more...

FLIGHT OF THE FLEAT
“A journey begins with a single step”. Who can ever say that with only a year of planning and preparation, BNHS-Senior High will be a realization? The vision is now a reality.
Bataan National High School has made herself well known of quality education, and lifelong learning institution. With the launching of Senior High School, it will soon open a new chapter of story and history but people will never forget what is inculcated in the mind of the teachers of BNHS, “A true leader leaves a mark when he left”. At the moment Dr. Capili, enjoys the office of the ASDS in DepEd Tarlac City office. But before he went there, he ported the Senior High School all-encompassing. As of him, he sees BNHS in 2018 a well-established Senior High school, where youth relishes success in excellence not only in the academe but also in services.
At present BNHS-SHS is managed by the current ASDS, Roland M. Fronda, EdD. The thought about “understanding the smell of the sheep” which we often hear before is never heard anymore. Dr. Fronda on his temporary stay in the school had established an excellent leadership and organized the new face of the SHS. He is now maintaining the good emblem in SHS. Support from the local government, private sectors, and parents has made things little by a little a realization of the vision. We can now say, Department of Education, with the compassionate brace of industrious work force, Bataan National High School-Senior High School is an inclusive haven for the youth.
