“I am interested in the development of the Bataan High School for the Arts. This school will further improve the talent of our young individuals while promoting Philippine culture and arts. I congratulate the regional office for your efforts in establishing this school which is necessary along with the emergence of technology,” said Briones.

Under DepEd Central Luzon’s efforts, the establishment and construction of the school for the arts is expected to be completed by 2023. Despite the continuous construction, BSHA has already started the pioneering class with at least 40 students under the blended mode of learning.

Meanwhile, Visual Arts, Theater Arts, Media Arts, Creative Writing, Folk Dance, Ballet, and Music are among the strands that BHSA is currently offering.
