List of Applied Track Subjects Across the Four SHS Tracks

The Applied Track Subjects will equip the learners with the same competencies required across tracks. The delivery of the subjects may be adjusted according to the context and content of the tracks. Therefore, the students learn the same skill/competency despite the different teaching-learning content and strategy. For example, the Arts and Design Track research subjects may focus on the study of a particular art technique while the Sports Track research subjects may focus on the mechanics of a particular sport. Although the topics of the research subjects are different, the students will be learning and applying the same research skills.

Besides developing critical competencies for learners, the Applied Track Subjects also make the SHS curriculum flexible because it allows the learner to move across tracks, in case s/he changes her/his mind in the middle of Senior High School (SHS).
