SMC is one of the top schools in the Philippines offering Basic Education and College. We are supervised by Southville International School and Colleges, a school with international character with international accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, U.S.A. Our school is located south of Manila, 30 minutes from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). It is very accessible through the main highway that traverses from Greater Manila to Southern Luzon.
South Mansfield College equips students the necessary skills and values to become movers of society through the AVID (academic excellence, values excellence, interpersonal sensitivity, and drive and discipline to achieve) in a vibrant and caring learning environment. Students are exposed to different experiences where they grow not only as intellectuals but also as men and women with hearts of service. With the growth mindset and grit that the school would like to inculcate, students develop the character of high effort, passion, and perseverance.
Last February 13, 2018, Diane Villena of Grade 10 Resilience competed in the 2018 Ten MOST Silver sponsored by the City Government of Muntinlupa and was chosen as a recipient of the prestigious award. She ranked high in the talent competition and the interview where she got the nod of the judges with her wit and intelligence. Her talent, on the other hand, was adjudged one of the best this year.
Diane, as she is fondly called, is a consistent honor student and a campus leader. Having the interpersonal sensitivity, she took on leadership roles that teenagers of her age would just dream about. Just recently, she won in the APSAM Solo Voice Competition. Diane also excelled in last year’s YMCA National Convention of Students as an outstanding delegate.
The ‘Ten Muntinlupa Outstanding Students (MOST)’ gives recognition and honor to talented and academically excellent students in all public and private high schools of Muntinlupa.
