2018 A Banner Year for Eastbridge Graduates

It was exactly three years ago when I wrote an article about our graduates going to top schools. The story was headlined by Reynaldo Guieb who passed the Philippines Science High School and is now a student there. He is joined by six more of his classmates who also went to other schools like Miriam, Marikina Science and St. Scholastica. Since then, many more of our graduates and undergraduates made splashes in various top schools in QC including Ateneo. But 2018 is even better, not only in high school entrance exams but also in private school competitions.

To start off, during the ROPRISA (Rodriguez Private Schools Association), Eastbridge Math, Science and Spelling teams captured the gold and went on to represent the town of Rodriguez in the provincial competition (RIPRISA). The Math team again captured the gold for the second consecutive year and went on to represent the province of Rizal in the regional competition where it ended up with the silver. The Science and Spelling teams went home with bronze at the RIPRISA competition.

Then here's the best part. Two of our graduates, Joaquin Keisher Nepomuceno and Genesis Haylan Mendoza passed the Philippines Science High School exam. Joaquin also took the Ateneo High School exam and passed, together with two other classmates - Angelo Quejada and Rigel Almario. Eight of their classmates passed the Miriam High School exam, four passed the Marikina Science exam and two passed the Quezon City Science exam. The following is the complete list of the schools where our graduates passed and may enroll this coming school year.

As the ones ahead of them have set the trail for them to follow, these graduates have big shoes to fill. Their seniors still continue to garner honors in their chosen high schools, bringing more honor to their Alma Mater and these new graduates cannot presume to do less.

God bless you all and may your Eastbridge training and foundation help you scale new heights and reach new goals. Just don't forget to thank the Lord for each for without Him, you can do nothing (John 15:5).
