Could this be the Placement Cut-Off Points and Corresponding Choices of Schools?


Getting into the senior high school of your choice is one of the most significant accomplishments any senior high school (SHS) can make. Well, most graduates from junior high school become perplexed when it comes to SHS placement issues.

Before one gets the opportunity to be placed in his/her choice of senior high school, the individual must follow the SHS placement guidelines issued by the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) secretariat. The guidelines for the selection of senior high schools are as follows;

All public second-cycle institutions have been categorized into four (4) groups, namely: Categories A, B, C, and D. All technical and vocational education and training institutions have been classified into A, B, and C, and added to SHS/ SHTS”.

Parents are urged to notice that all schools selected (1st to 6th) are considered in the placement of candidates before making any decisions about schools and programs offered in these schools.

Before a student engages in the selection of SHSs, the conditions underneath must be keenly observed to prevent any anomalies.
