What is it?
K to 12 has kindergarten as base, to be followed by six years of elementary (Grades 1 to 6), four years of junior high school (Grades 7 to 10), and two years of senior high school (Grades 11 and 12).
Who will be affected?
The incoming Grade 7 this school year will be the first batch to graduate as junior high school in 2016, and if they decide to pursue their studies, they would graduate as senior high school in 2018.
Who are exempt?
Incoming second year, third year, and fourth year high school students will not be covered by K to 12 and will graduate when they finish fourth year. They can proceed to college after graduating from high school.
