One of the three elite universities in the Philippines. It is composed of middle to upper class kids and occasionally, a few smart but destitute students.

It has a long ongoing rivalry with De La Salle University, another top university.

Both universities are known to have quality education and a reputable milieu in which students can thrive in.

Getting into the Ateneo however, is hard as fuck IF you're not smart (and when I say smart, you're the type that can get a B in school without studying because YOU KNOW you're good). One can experience this via the ACET, the Ateneo College Entrance Exam.
La Salle: I don't need to study hard coz my parents can buy me into the school
Ateneo: I'll try my best in maximizing the expensive fees my parents pay just to let me study here.
UP: Need we say more? We passed the UPCAT therefore we are really the cream of the crop

One of the "top" schools (though horrible school standard in terms of world rank) in the Katipunan area. Ateneo is for flirty girls from ICA and average IQ Xavier boys and some mix of others from not so famous high schools.

Ateneo's standard has long been ruined since the feeling-social girls would speak improper English out loud where ever they go, esp when they shop in 168 shopping mall.

Ateneans refer to anyone who pretend they can't understand tagalog and would speak in tagalog-accent English. Furthermore, Ateneo is the breeding ground of desperate kids from middle class who tried so hard to stand out when in fact, they are all just clones of each other, both in terms of personality and behavior.
O my gosh, the pood last night was so good. We should go again tomolo. And O, I am from Ateneo de Manila University located in the armpit of Katipunan.

The Ateneo de Davao University High School (ADDU) is located at Juna Subdivision Matina, Davao City.

It is a school known for its well-to-do and privileged students which was later (informally) defined in the local dialect as Ang Dili Datu Uli (ADDU) or Ang Dili Datu Undang (ADDU).

Although students here are labeled as spoiled brats, wild and party goers by outsiders(and haters) Ateneo de Davao University has, throughout the years, proven itself to be a supreme institution among the rest in Davao City as it continues to excel in academics and co-curricular activities.
