Cavite School of Life Dasmarinas Campus
Last Monday, my friend and I visited the Cavite School of Life Dasma Campus at Salawag Crossing Dasmariñas City, Cavite. It was just a few blocks away from The District Dasma mall along Molino Road.
We went here to inquire about their mainstreaming/special education program. We met the Principal and he explained to us how the kids in the mainstreaming program were being handled. The ratio for typical kids plus mainstream kids were usually 25:2 (which means 2 mainstream kids out of 25 students).
He said that after the initial evaluation, the kid will be given an Individualized Education Program (IEP). This is an advantage for us parents with special kids because IEP will spell out our child’s learning needs, the services the school will provide and how progress will be measured.
Compared with my son’s current school, we don’t have an IEP so we just need to follow, adjust and do whatever the school wants us to do.
I asked how the typical kids adjust to the needs of the kids under the mainstream program. He said that at the start of the school year, the special kids are introduced to the class. Everyone are expected then to understand and treat each other with high respect. They were doing this for many years and he said that they did not get any issues about it. They also talk to parents about the school rules with regards to this kind of program.
Pre-School : Regular (P43K for Nursery/Junior Kinder) (P46K Senior Kinder) (P68K SPED)
Elementary: Regular (P41K for Grade 1-3) then the price increases per level (P70K+ SPED/MAINSTREAM)
I hope to receive some feedback from parents who have their kids here so that we will have an idea on the school’s curriculum.
