DOST's "smart" science high school to rise in Koronadal City

“This will be a smart campus,” so said Science Secretary Mario Montejo on his plans for the Philippine Science High School - Soccsksargen campus during its groundbreaking ceremony at  Brgy. Paraiso, Koronadal City on June 22, 2012. The campus is latest PSHS campus to be constructed.

“We’ll make this new campus really unique, not only in curriculum but also in physical structure and design of the buildings and architecture. This campus will stand out,” he added.

The PSHS system, also endearingly called “Pisay,” is under the administration of the Department of Science and Technology. Pisay campuses prepare students for science careers, thus designing their curriculum with science and mathematics in focus but balanced with humanities and the arts.

The newest PSHS will rise on a five-hectare land worth P7.3 million donated by the South Cotabato province.  The campus will comprise academic buildings, research and laboratory facilities, dormitory, and other facilities to complete the learning experience of students.
