Per grade level, Kindergarten has the most number of enrolled learners with 1,060,138 followed by Elementary (Grades 1 to 6) with 7,376, 586.

There are 5,179,673 enrollees in Grades 7 to 10 (Junior High School) and 2,412,855 learners in Grades 11 and 12 (Senior High School).

DepEd opened the enrollment for public schools on July 25. Enrollment will continue until Aug. 22, 2022, which is also the first day of classes as announced by DepEd.

Meanwhile, DepEd continues to encourage parents and guardians to enroll their children as soon as possible.

To ensure the safety of everyone, DepEd schools are implementing various enrollment methods which include in-person, remote, and dropbox enrollment.

For the Alternative Learning System (ALS), DepEd said that learners can now enroll in-person or online.

In a recent press conference, DepEd recognized that the opening of classes “will not be without challenges.”

Despite this, the agency remains optimistic that these challenges would be addressed by working together.
