General Academic Strand (GAS)

Many Senior High School students are part-time workers or help out with the family business, as such, you may find it difficult to attend a traditional school with a strict schedule. Because of this, many students have had to face the tough decision of choosing between work or school, often having to sacrifice their schooling to help out with the families expenses.
