The greatest miracle of Fr. Al Schwartz. Providing free education for the poor but qualified students. They mold their students not only for intellectual learning but also spiritual values so that when they graduated and leave the institution, they are ready to face the real world which is the society where in the constant battle of good and evil would be the greatest challenge. "Run lightly in the way of the Lord..."
This is probably the most bot voted comment I've seen on this website. - Minecraftcrazy530
"Mold to soar High and build spirit that will never be broken" the poorest of the poor.
Teaching level is high with technical courses integrated in the curriculum. Not only knowledge and skills are developed but also good moral values are deepen to be strong enough to face the harsh world.
NO "SINGLE" word can exactly define this School given by God to the Poorest of the Poor Youth of our country! I am so blessed to be part of this "FAMILY"...it is not just a school and a home...above all...this is also a happy and meaningful family that many people wish to have. I will always treasure and practice the values that this school thought me.
Who and what I am now is because of my Alma Matter and our dear founder who molded me to become a globally competitive member of society and a better child of God.
My gratitude for this school, home and family will NEVER end...
You transformed me into something that I never imagined before...
You made me grow into something SPECIAL just like our school... - jossa
An alumni from the main campus here. I think what made the school one of the best for me is that students are encouraged to excel not only in the sciences. All students were given ample opportunity to show that they could excel as well as overwhelming support when they proved that they deserved it. The school, while it does focus on education, also allow and encourage extracurricular activities and respect for diversity present due to the diverse origins of the students. Diversity in terms of economic capability, religion and gender just to name some of the more obvious.
Despite of its "rigorous" curriculum which prioritizes science and math, scholars as still encouraged to join in other extra curricular activities an is also known for its competitiveness in competition. Its curriculum also enables scholars to excel in any subject in their favor. So, no doubt, it is the best high school in the Philippines.
Simply the best the country can offer. Not only treated as the premiere high school in the Philippines, it also is dubbed as one of the best pre-college education Asia. With its advance college-level curriculum and teachers trained as scientists (non-LET), this school system provides its gifted students the proper environment to unravel all the academic potentials they have.
I'm gonna learn there this school year, and reading this makes me informed and happyV 83 Comments
Established in 1902. CNHS is one of the oldest and premier national high schools in the Philippines. This school is divided in special science classes where students who have proven their excellence in academics will receive extra privileges in quality education and facilities and the regular classes that follow the curriculum from the Dept. Of Education. This school is always one of the source of the successful UP students.
I was one of the students from my primary catholic school who belong to the first batch who started in Cavite Science during my time then in 1995. This school has been known for excellence and best high school in Cavite that time and continued to be until now. Not only are students given chance to excel academically, they also have a balance as there are extracurricular activities that they can engage in. I can say that each batch who has graduated consist of students who are now successful in the careers they chose. I'm proud to be a graduate of this school - and so are my siblings.
The school the gave me the knowledge to work for NASA. Without the foundation that this institution has inculcated in all of the students, present and alumni, we would have our dreams remain as a vision statement. I am really honored to be one of them who have made their dreams a reality.
Graduates of this school are really good enough to compete internationally!V 80 Comments
This is the best high school in Laguna. Never imagined that this school would take me to places. PGMNHS gives students the opportunity to have a better life by providing good foundation in science and technology through its science class. It offers competitive advantage when applying to UP and equip students with knowledge that they can use when they go to college. This is the school that made me realised my dreams without even knowing it.
This school is not only good at academic, but also in the values of students. Perhaps, this is a school where individual intellect blooms
Pedro Guevera Memorial National High School is a public school of the finest. It really challenges you intellectually and personality-wise. It's just a wonderful place to meet the most diverse of people since students from every city/town in the province of Laguna partake into the sacrificial time of traveling just to study at the school. The teachers are one of the finest when it comes to teaching and mentoring - students create wonderful relationships with teachers outside and inside the school's premises. The Supreme Student Council is to brag for since it has gathered numerous awards from regional to national levels. Leaders are what Pedro Guevara creates. Students are also very competitive when it comes to all areas of ability. We nurture excellence and adaptability among the students that are highly essential in life.
This school where great students and GREAT TEACHERS are in.. I am proud to be guevarian..V 197 Comments
This school is probably one of the best science high schools in the Philippines, but still keep a low profile. Let's face it people, many shs in the provinces produce globally competitive individuals and this school is no exception.
Produced top notchers, university scholars, individuals who excel in their respective fields..
An exceptional school with quality education, Cavite State University Science Laboratory High School produces astute, talented individuals prepared to smite and slay the dragon of problems of our country and help us reach the princess in the tower - victory.
Good school..V 32 Comments
5 other schools started from here. A number of great Philippine presidents studied here.
Proud alumni of the school. Had a very difficult highschool cause they are so advance. Was juggling 2-3 science and 2 math subjects per year. But all the hardwork paid off, got in all college/universities and got a full scholarship in one of the schools I applied for. College life was easy since most of the topics were taken during my high school. Plus during my time, we were winning not only nationwide competitiion but also overseas.
One of the best high school in the country, also located in one of the best historical place in Manila.
I WANT TO STUDY HERE!V 11 Comments
Aside from the sciences, part of the curriculum of this school is to teach life skills to its students. It's really a bragging right to college telling others that you've experienced farming, slaughtering chickens and pigs, and even hammering and welding. Those are skills that you need to survive and to do work other than academics"
Honing well rounded young individuals. Jack of all trade students produced.
Sure, there are always the odd ones out who don't fit in with the jack-of-all-trades image, but no one can deny that the unique and diverse curriculum makes for a very good starting point for college curriculum, both in the sciences and the arts. Throw anything from indigenous music of the Filipino people, to Shakespearean literature, physics theories or even agriculture, a well-taught UPRHS student will be able to engage you in the most interesting discussions.
An award-winning high school. One of the best.V 55 Comments
The rich history and line up of alumni that this institution has produced for the past decades have been exceptional. Graduates of this high school excelled in almost every discipline that they chose to make as a career. The passion that they have for learning never ceases to amaze me.
Rizal High School provides a liberal type of education in the country, upbeat with the current trends in pedagogy produces quality graduates notable in different field of discipline.
Teachers are extremely creative in teaching the students, in a way that they won't be bored. You won't feel at school when you have one!
I am graduate here. It has a reputation of being a highly competitive school among the topnotch schools in Metro Manila. If you are a representative of this school in an interschool competition, you are admired and respected by studenta of other schools including Pisay.V 10 Comments
It's a public school productive in making numerous successful professionals to this day. Building talents, creativity, sports,literature, science, technology, engineering etc. As foundation for the students to college.
One of the best school in silay city, negros Occidental
I have so many good friends came from this school. Thumbs up to them! Proud Silaynon here!
Proud to be a DMLMHS alumnus.Batch 81 the best.
The Tagaytay City Science National High School is an awesome secondary school because it nurtures every skills of the students through the help of skillful teachers. And the students of Tagaytay Science were able to be on top in every contests they are joining outside the school. The quality of teaching is good.
It has improved a lot! It actually looks like a private school now. Teachers are great and the place is clean. A lot of its students have become scholars and got in prestigious schools. Most of whom I've seen on television. They maintain high standards and has been the best school in tagaytay in my experience of changing schools.
Quality works and achievements. Though challenged by the poor conditions of the utilities and rooms, the students meet the highest expectations. What more if the building, utilities, and tools of the school were developed?
I am proud to be a Sayanista. Home of the brave and excellent people. We have great teachers that will mold you and help you bring out the best in you. When I was in college and you introduce yourself that you studied here all of your classmates will look at you amazed. Allthrough out the years this school made a lot of great leaders of today in different fields. You will definitely fee that you need to be at your best everyday as the students as so competitive and coaches will push you to your limit until you saw your full potential.V 87 Comments
No matter how many flowery or appraising words I intend to use for this 'review', there will never be enough. Amazing artists? Check. Advanced and rigorous subjects? Check. Healthy athletic competitions and interactive events? Check. Exchange programs? Check. International, national, regional, and local events? Check. State-of-the-art facilities and classrooms? We started from a typical public high school setting but you probably heard of the overpriced building issue. I bet an American college student tuition fees that you'd disagree about the waste of money stand on the issue when you meet one of ours. Not one student was a waste of subsidy of the government (legit or not).
What I loved about studying in Makati Science was the student body was so diverse. You would have students coming from both public and private schools, with academic prowess being the uniting factor among the students. Also, the school had a lot of extra-curricular activities that I believed shaped a lot of its students to be well-rounded individuals. It was also a very humbling experience studying in MakSci, where practically everyone was at the same level academically, so it kept us grounded, and sort of forced us to look for our edge.
Makati Science High School gave me a privilege to have good education. It gave me lots of opportunities in learning several advanced subjects. Its culture of friendship even though competitions arise is one of its strengths. Its teachers commit to the growth of the students.

The pressure and experience is a perfect stimulation in preparation of the college life. Professors are influential and so are the families built within this school. It welcomes a brand of real life to students inside together with the hope of helping our country.

Want to remembered by excellence? Go to Manila Science High School (Pilot Science School in the Philippines) which Excellence is a Tradition. Absolutely the best! Bringing pride to the country for so many years since the time it was founded which focuses not only academically but also in a LOT of curricular activities plus it prepares you for College
Manila Science High School continues to produce graduates who become outstanding professionals in the fields they have chosen. It's very challenging to study there because most of the subjects are advanced and this will be a very big advantage when students already go to college.
VMHS helps their students to develop not only to be on top academically but also hones every potential that they are best in.. The supportive teachers help every student to be the best that they can be. Special skills are sharpened to help their students to become professionals in their chosen careers.

Excellent and very approachable teachers together with high quality learning systems which incorporate Religion in the appropriate topics. Moreover, provides a peaceful and harmonious environment that helps students improve not just academically but also in different aspects of life. Likewise, different activities were also done as to hone their skills in other areas aside from reading and writing; Encourages students and teachers to share their talents through various activities.
This is where the true meaning of "Family". Helping one's back when you are done. Students are well trained to know what is the meaning of Discipline, Respect, Humility and many more. This institution covers our hearts and mind that God is truly there for us, with the help of every person inside with the best quality of academics. This school has Heart. All hail the Our Lady Of Peace. (proud Alumni)
A school that uses Religion as the Core of the Curriculum using Whole Brain Learning System as a strategy.
One of the most competitive schools in Rizal Province and it has a great learning environment for students to grow and enrich their skills academically and spiritually.V 53 Comments
It is also the only school in entire Region 2 that produces excellent students in Sports. They implemented a Special Program just for sports. So that students will develop their sportsmanship and camaraderie in their sport. We are also very discipline in time management because we prioritize our academic. So please make our school one of the best high school in the Philippines because it is indeed true
This is the Biggest, Highest and Fiercest School in entire Region 2 Cagayan Valley. We are known for our strongest fighting spirits when battling in any competition. We are not backing down in any hindrance that block our way to the triumph.
It is the best high school ever. They produce professional people. Every student is learning a quality education. The teachers are high caliber educators. They value the true essence of learning. I bet this is the best school in the Philippines. Most of the graduating students are in University of the Philippines when they go in college.
The SPA or Special Program for the Arts have forever baffled me. As a student at International School Manila, everything you can imagine present at an American high school set up is a given to me. Yet as a student, I primarily excell in dancing and all else is pretty average about my grades. Cagayan High offers this SPA program in which you can actually major in Dancing! Not just that but in so many other arts! My sisters are proud graduates of this High school, one being a Theater Major and the other a Music Major. A ton of my cousins also went here ranging from Science Sections to to lowest of the Regular Sections, my cousins are still pretty greqt! Cagayan High offers such a well rounded education and if I am not privileged enough to learn in International School Manila, this school will definitely be my pick.V 85 Comments

University of Saint Louis isn't called "The school of topnotchers" just for nothing. They accept students of any race and status and build them up to be the professionals they are meant to become.

TCSHS has developed a worldwide reputation as one of the best high schools in the Region, public or private. It attracts an intellectually gifted blend of culturally, ethnically, and economically diverse students.
Tuguegarao City Science HighSchool is not a battle for the students who enrolled here. But the battle here is survival. Students are pressured here because of the very high standards of the teachers who expect much from the students but the students strive harder to reach the high altitudes. Students here learn very comfortable because of it's ventilation. Tugscie is not just a school for academics if you look at it that way. Yes, They have developed students worldwide. Have gone Nationally and internationally. Tugscie is not just for those intelligent students out there but for both intelligent and hardworking. Your conscience will kill you if ever you didn't do a project or an assignment or even if you didn't review for a test. Reviewing isn't that hard eventhough you have to memorize all the notes given because teachers share their most creative way of teaching you how to. Teachers here do not teach only the subjects but they teach you how to learn the subject
We mostly win different contests and not only contests that includes academics.
Tcshs produces WEAK students because they didn't pass through true hardwork. The students here LACK of DISCIPLINE.V 20 Comments

^ And your basis is for saying that is? Bet you don't even know how it is to study inside this school. Academics in this high school is almost the same level as college courses/lessons. The students here are trained to master (if not, at least familiarize) the topics to be used in the future. Given an example, my math subjects during my stay in this school is harder than my math courses in college (and I even come from one of the so-called "Big Four" universities). My point is, you don't need to generalize just because your blockmates """don't excel in anything""". One thing for sure we'd excel at & I bet we would never fail at, is using the values & morality that was shown to us. I bet this school wouldn't be producing so many intelligent & empowered women for several years just because of your unsupported statement.
All-girls schools are the best. Case closed.
Hello hater! don't generalize.

This is not supposed to be on the list.
Formerly Quezon Provincial High School, established in 1902 and one of the oldest public schools in the country. Like most public schools it is grossly over populated, under funded and under resourced, but it punches heavily above it's weight.
During my time there, we had high quality and very dedicated teachers. They make do with the scant resources they had to produce students who are not only proficient in academics but also in sports and extra curricular activities. The school paper "The Coconut" was winning in national competitions and the school has produced a large number of students who qualified for the tough UP entrance exams, more than any of comparable high schools and exclusive private schools in the region.
Probably the best thing that the school did for me and other graduates is fostering the belief that anyone, no matter how poor their circumstances are, armed with a good education and self belief, can be a successful and productive citizen of the world.
Quezon National High School has developed in me the holistic foundation necessary for college education and as a person. It has instilled the core values vital for one's success.
A school in southern tagalog providing a good quality of education. Focused on students development and wellness. Has excellent and competitive teachers that makes it effective for the school to produce a well rounded,excellent and competitive students. I'm proud to be a product of this school.

The most innovative high school entire the phillipines for two (2) consecutive years..
It has good facilities, polite students, friendly faculty and staff. They have good teaching curriculum. The things that they should enhance are their canteen, some students who have low attitude and the extracurricular activities.
MSMSI's drama club, Thespians, is also a group you shouldn't miss. Kids their age have enormous potentials. They also show heart in every performance they feature. Don't miss them!
Excellent education. The students are also great in sports but there are no varsities. It's mainly an acad-oriented school so I would have to disagree with the "perfect balance" comment. If we ranked their priorities, it would be academics then the arts then sports.
