The students are the focus of the teaching-learning process. All efforts being done by faculty members, non-teaching staff and administrators should gear towards the full and holistic development of the learners.

To do so, there is a need to maximize students’ engagement in the school and empower these learners that they try hard to learn what school offers. They should take pride not simply in earning the formal indicators of success (grades), but in understanding the material and incorporating or internalizing it in their lives. Students who are engaged show sustained behavioral involvement in learning activities accompanied by a positive emotional tone. They select tasks at the border of their competencies, initiate action when given the opportunity, and exert intense effort and concentration in the implementation of learning tasks; they show generally positive emotions during ongoing action, including enthusiasm, optimism, curiosity, and interest. (Skinner, 1993)
