La Salle Green Hills (LSGH) continues its mission as a learner-centered and service-oriented institution in pursuit of social transformation as it transitions into co-educational in all grades beginning School Year 2021 to 2022.
The 60-year-old internationally renowned private Catholic school has been exclusive for boys and young gentlemen since its establishment in 1959. Today, it adapts to the changing landscape of education as it follows the footsteps of all other 15 La Salle Schools in the Philippines.
In a letter addressed to the Lasallian community, LSGH Principal Br. Alexander Ervin Diaz FSC stated that the decision was based on several aspects, one of which is the promotion of equal access to quality Lasallian education for all genders.
“The School has since moved to be inclusive in accommodating Deaf students and even adult learners and students with special needs, the introduction of a coed system in the basic education would be a step towards expanding our inclusivity,” he stated.
LSGH believes that the new learning environment allows for a more diverse yet natural development. “Co-curricular activities will be more varied, classroom learning behaviors will be enhanced, a new school culture will emerge with an improved mixed-gender perspective, and an overall strengthening to the already solid foundation that is uniquely LSGH,” Br. Diaz added.
The institute first opened its doors to include female learners for Senior High School in School Year 2020 to 2021.

“We saw a smooth integration of our first batch of Grade 11 female students at present and we wish to assure you all of the School’s plans to pursue the groundwork for buildings and facilities, policies for Safe Spaces, and programs fit for a co-ed learning environment,” he shared.
“At the turn of this new decade, faced with challenging educational demands and outcomes, LSGH is focused on continuing to provide excellent Lasallian education that is inclusive and innovative and the formation of a diverse community that is adaptable and ready for life,” he ended.
Prior to the transition, LSGH stood as the only remaining exclusive boys’ school of the De La Salle Brothers in the Philippines.
Following the foundation of the string of De La Salle Institutions since 1911, LSGH was the established second in Luzon and the fourth overall in the Philippines.
