TOPS – TOP 100 Outstanding Performing Students


The progress of a nation largely depends on its manpower.  It is therefore the responsibility of the government to provide relevant education and training to the people to ensure that they are properly trained to do what is expected of them to alleviate the national status of the country specifically in terms of economy.

As a concerned educational institution, Southville International School and Colleges (SISC) recognized the need for private schools to work alongside the government in terms of providing necessary education and training to the youth who will become the vanguards of the nation.  In this aspect, SISC is launching the “Search for the Top Outstanding Performing Students (T.O.P.S.)  in the Philippines” in partnership with various institutions and civic-minded citizens.

What is T.O.P.S.?

The T.O.P.S. is SISC’s contribution to the efforts of the Department of Education (DepEd) in inspiring students to become achievers and make them enhance thier academic and leadership potentials as well as their character, values, their talents in arts, and sports by way of recognizing student-achievers in high school.

This was launched in October 2002 and from then on, SISC has maintained 100 TOPS scholars across curriculum levels and across programs every academic year.
