Abstract:

The study aimed to determine the educational and employment path of Philippine Science High School Western Visayas graduates. Respondents of the study were employed graduates of the said school from batch 1997 to batch 2000. The independent variables were sex, scholarship status, SMT GPA, year graduated, academic awards, and mother's and father's occupation. The dependent variables were the educational path. Moderator variable was the perception of graduates towards the school's academic policies, study condition, study provision, and activities. Descriptive statistics employed were frequency, percentages, mean and standard deviation. One way ANOVA, Scheffe test, t-test, chi-square, and Kolmogorov_Smirnov test were used for the inferential statistics. All statistical tools were computer processed using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) software. Significance level were set at .05 alpha for two-tailed tests. Findings of the study revealed that the respondents of the study, taken as an entire group and classified according to certain categories, had positive perception towards the school's academic policies, study condition, study provision, and activities. In terms of respondents' educational path, almost all of the graduates took SMT careers. However, only 37% of the respondents were able to pursue graduate education but still most of them specialized in Science, Math and Technology. In terms of the respondents' employment path, the salary mean of the respondents were P18,398.81. Group with the highest salary mean were those with good GPA. Most of the respondents' job were related to their fields, waiting time was about three months before getting employed, and 100% were very satisfied of their current jobs. So far, no significant differences were found in the perception of respondents with regard to the PSHS education and their college and graduate degrees when classified according to certain categories. No significant differences were observed in the educational and employment path of respondents when classified according to certain categories. However, significant differences were found in the salary of graduates when they were classified according to year graduated. No significant relationship were observed between the graduates' job relevance, waiting time, and their personal related variables except between their waiting time, sex and awards. No difference were observed in the educational path of graduates in terms of their college and graduate degrees, and likewise their employment path in terms of their monthly salary, job relevance, job satisfaction, and waiting time when classified according to their perception with regard to PSHSWV education.
