    According to Edillon, the implementation of this program has helped students to finish education and proceed to higher education or technical and vocational courses. According to the Department of Education (DepED), Senior High School program “covers the last two years of the K to 12 program including Grades 11 and 12 where students go through a core curriculum and subjects under a track of choice.”
