About Assumption Antipolo:

Assumption Antipolo is a private, Catholic, college-preparatory school for girls located in the city of Antipolo, Rizal, Philippines.HistoryEarly historySister Marie Eugénie Milleret de Brou established the Congregation of the Religious of the Assumption in Paris on 30 April 1839 as a means to make a Christian transformation of society through education. The order arrived in Spanish colonial Philippines in 1892, and at the request of Queen María Cristina, consort of King Alfonso XII of Spain, they established the Superior Normal School for Women Teachers in Intramuros in 1892 which pioneered women education in the Philippines. Among its first alumnae were Rosa Sevilla de Alvero, Foundress of the Instituto de Mujeres; Librada Avelino and Carmen de Luna, who founded Centro Escolar University. At the outbreak of the Philippine Revolution of 1896, the order ceased operation of the school and returned to Europe.Herran-Dakota campusAt the request of Pope Pius X, a group of anglophone Assumption Sisters returned to Manila in 1904; the Philippine Islands were by then already under American control. With the group of Sisters were Mother Helen Margaret as Superior, and Mother Rosa María, who subsequently spent most of her religious life in the Religious of the Assumption in Asia. Originally an elementary and secondary school, the College was added in 1940. Its successors are Assumption Antipolo and Assumption College San Lorenzo.

This is a high class school which started from other countries. I am a proud student of the school. The school teaches students to be eco-friendly by making the schol have ecoparks and tree planting activities. Really fun and learning field trips like science center, ocean park, zoos, baguio, and history parks.

Fantastic school with excellent academic, and social/community focus. A haven from the hustle of city living, and a great environment for learning. I am a graduate of the school, and am proud of the strong roots it has established in my schoolmates as well as myself as adults, and as active members of the community and society.
