On the other hand, PEAC is an organization that looks into the school’s implementation of the K-12 standards.

The preparations for the said accreditation include internal assessment by the teachers of the school, compounding of exhibits and documentation and teachers’ development programs through seminars. The school also improved its physical plant with the newly air-conditioned rooms with television sets for technology-based teaching aids.

More preparatory measures still need to be undertaken in order for the school to be fully ready for the accreditation. However, the school hopes to be able to reach the standards set by PAASCU and PEAC in the coming years.
