We, the faculty and staff of the School of Languages, Humanities, and Social Sciences, affirm our adherence to the beliefs here articulated.
Every student is a unique individual who possesses talents and potentials that must be honed and nurtured by the academic community.
Every student’s educability arises from his possession of an intellect that seeks the truth, and a will that pursues what is good.
Every student is influenced by family, community, and environment but is responsible for personal choices and decisions made freely.
In helping the student excel in his chosen field, we need to make them deeply aware of what it means to be human.

SLHS education fortifies the student’s desire and ability for critical analysis and evaluation of circumstances and events around him by educating him on the timeless and unchanging truths about man and man’s existence. Armed with such ability, the student can therefore arrive at informed judgments and take prudent action on current relevant issues.
SLHS education instils in every student a strong sense of citizenship in his country and in the larger global community, and thus prepares him to work well in multi-cultural settings, in the service of the common good of society.
The prime duty of a teacher is to facilitate the acquisition of relevant and useful knowledge and skills, and develop sound values and attitudes that empower the student in the pursuit of success in professional, social, and personal life. The teacher does this by being the first in learning, in giving, and in serving.
Guided by these beliefs, the SLHS teacher shall live out the vocation to teach with the highest degree of commitment to the goal of education, that is, to form character, and inspire and ignite noble ambitions. This is the SLHS teacher’s main accountability and the gauge of his excellence.
The SLHS teaching force has been steadfast in achieving its goals. Students are trained to attain proficiency in the English language in order to be competitive with their counterparts here and in other countries. Through the Humanities, they are made aware of the importance of intellectual, moral and aesthetic development. Their exposure to the Social Sciences develops in them the consciousness of human problems and their solutions. In short, the School believes in making a difference through the formation of the individual student into a total person.
