Mr Jervy M Robles is the next Headmaster of the Ateneo de Manila Grade School.

In a memorandum released 19 April 2021, Fr Roberto C Yap SJ, University President, announced Robles's appointment as the next leader of the Grade School, for an initial 3-year term starting 1 June 2021.

"Mr Robles is no stranger to the Ateneo having been a member of the AGS community for the past 25 years as teacher and administrator," Fr Yap said in the memo.

He currently serves as Assistant Headmaster for Academic Affairs, a post he has held since June 2020. Prior to this role, he held various positions as faculty member, Grade 5 Level Coordinator (2002-2008), Language Subject Area Coordinator (2010-2011), and Assistant Headmaster for Student Affairs (2011-2019).

He holds an MA in Education from the National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (2009), and an AB in Pre-Divinity from Ateneo de Manila University (1995).

Robles succeeds the late Fr Emerito Salustiano "Salty" R de la Rama SJ.

"As we welcome Jervy, we also express our profound gratitude to the late Fr Emerito Salustiano “Salty” R de la Rama SJ for his Ignatian generosity and dedication in serving as steward of the AGS since June 2018, as Officer-in-Charge, Acting Headmaster, and finally as Headmaster of the school," the University President said.

"Let us support our new Headmaster with our cooperation and prayers. May the Risen Lord give him strength and wisdom in shepherding the Grade School as it continues to form young Christ-centered Ateneans of competence, conscience, compassion and commitment," he added.
