History

In the early part of 1966, the Carmona Resettlement Project was created; a Priority Project sponsored by the NHA. It is bounded by Tunasan Friar Land of San Pedro, Laguna, a portion of Carmona, Cavite (now known as Gen. Mariano Alvarez) and Dasmariñas, Cavite. The first wave resettlers were the families who lived along the railroad tracks of PNR from Taguig to Tutuban, Manila. This totaled to more or less 6,500 households with an average family members of 5 persons, two of whom are schooling age, either in elementary or secondary. The distance to the nearest school approximately 12 kilometers away from home, hampered the education of these children.

By the virtue of Barangay High School Act, the dream of establishing a high school to cater the education needs was realized under the leadership of Councilors Doroteo E. Jumauay Sr. and Francisco Benito. Cognizant of the struggle the students were experiencing, the councilors fetched them straight from Carmona Cavite and proceeded to Malacañang to follow up the said proposal. Apparently indispensable and beneficial it was approved thus the birth of Laguna Resettlement Community High School in 1970 at United Bayanihan, San Pedro, Laguna with Mrs. Bartolomea E. Pedron as Principal.

Later, the joint effort of the community leaders and the municipal government had paved the way of its conversion to SAN PEDRO RELOCATION CENTER NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL, a national funded high school thru Republic Act 6026 in 1972 with Mrs. Lourdes Z. Javier as the Principal.

With the population growth, it has given way to its expansion, thus the creation of two campuses – the SPRCNHS Langgam Campus in 1986 and SPRCNHS Cuyab Campus in 1989. Acquisition of lots (5.7 hectares at Langgam by Mr. Emilio S. Ulpindo, Principal May 1981 – July 1, 1999) and (additional 1,000 sq.m. at Cuyab by Dr. Edna V. Perez, principal July 1, 1999 – August, 2000) were made possible.

Presently, the school has moved one step bigger again with the opening of its fourth annex, the Landayan Campus on October 25, 2002. Its operation started this June, 2003. This was realized through a Resolution of the Municipal Council with the Honorable Mayor and federated PTA of San Pedro. This is a part of the organization and administration of the present principal, Dr. Victorio N. Medrano.

Vision

San Pedro Relocation Center National High School is envisioned as a Center of Excellence in Technological and Basic Secondary Education in Laguna in particular and in the Philippines in general.

Philosophy

As a DepEd institution, the SPRCNHS believes that education is not an area of knowledge that can be arrogated itself by one profession, nor it is a division separated and distinct from the society and the times in which it flourishes. It is a network of knowledge, skills applied to the economic, social and moral development of self-actualized and productive citizenry.

The School Publication

The Root (Ang Ugat) is the official school publication of San Pedro Relocation Center National High School. The newspaper contains news, facts and opinions about the latest school events, competitions, and public affairs in a particular issue. The school paper is sub-divided into four major parts namely: news page, editorial page, feature/literary page and sports page. It publishes every school year consisting of two issues: one issue in The Root, and one in Ang Ugat.

K-12 Basic Education Program

San Pedro Relocation Center National High School is one of the five key schools in Luzon to implement the K-to-12 curriculum for the School Year 2012-2013. DepEd released a memorandum for the selected schools, for Luzon: Bataan, Pampanga, Bulacan, NCR, and Laguna. For Visayas: Leyte, Bukidnon, and Cebu. And for Mindanao: Tagum.

A student must finish the course with a year in kindergarten and twelve years in grade school. The program aims to improve the competency level of a typical Philippine school like SPRCNHS through the addition of Advanced subjects like Calculus, Robotics, Advanced Computer-aid Drawing (CAD) and Institution of training like the Call Center Course at the senior year of the students. After completing the six years in secondary high school, students will have their On the Job Training (O.J.T.) for further guidance in their chosen careers.
