Strengths of the NESC
The NESC curriculum is of great help to the Filipino children especially in molding them as human persons, as a good citizens and productive agents for economic, social and cultural development. The curriculum provides every Filipino child the basic preparation to become an enlightened, disciplined, nationalistic, self reliant, God-loving, creative, versatile and productive.

Weakness
The NESC offers too many subjects. This will result in knowing more of the subjects and less of the content. With this number of subjects, the students will get bored and cannot concentrate well and even neglect their assignment
