  • agudaWelcome to the Batangas State University University Integrated School (BatStateU IS ) page !

    The BatStateU IS through the years has sustained its best to provide quality education to answer the needs of the children and young adults of the city and neighboring towns. The Department offers integrated programs to prepare pupils/students in their entry to higher learning.

    It aims to develop well-rounded, well-adjusted, mentally alert, responsible, disciplined, law abiding and God – loving learners imbued with knowledge, skills and attitudes and values as their solid foundation for their entry into Grade I, high school, and college with adequate exposure to relevant training in science and technology, to prepare them to become productive and worthy members of society.

    To accomplish these, the IS has committed teachers who perform their instructional tasks and responsibilities to their maximum capacity, work on diligently for their own professional growth and make effective and efficient use of resources in school as well as in the community .

    Such teachers’ concern and administrative support make BatStateU IS a choice of parents to be the second home of their children.

    Come and know us better.
