"History"

Due to the unprecedented increase of enrollment in San Pablo City National High School, it could no longer accommodate all the students coming from eight barangays of San Pablo. This problem was solved through the assistance of the city mayor, Hon. Vicente B. Amante & other local officials. Schools were brought by the local government to the barrios. Apprehended to this, through the Sanguniang Barangay of Stmo. Rosario headed by the late Chairman Elias Corales, the site, the owner of the land real-property was donated to the city Government pursuant to the Kapasyahan Blg. 93-3 dated July 1, 1993 citing the need for the construction of a barangay high school which can be effected through the support primarily of the city government. This school foundation & establishment started the first school construction of a three-classroom one storey building in a one hectare government lot.
