About Rizal National Science High School:

The Rizal National Science High School, commonly known as RNSHS, RiSci, or Rizal Science is a public science high school on Jose P. Rizal St., Batingan, Binangonan, Rizal, Philippines. It was founded in 1998.HistoryThe Rizal National Science High School first opened for the school year 1998–99. It was established to provide for more intensive and advanced secondary education program with special reference to science and technology.The establishment of the Rizal National Science High School was conceived and proposed by then Cong. Gilberto M. Duavit of the First District of Rizal who envisioned Rizal to be "the knowledge center in Asia" in coordination with Department of Education, Culture, and Sports (DECS) Division of Rizal under the leadership of the superintendent, Dr. Edith A. Doblada. Congressman Duavit then introduced House Bill No. 3910, for "the purpose of establishing a National Science School in Antipolo, Rizal to be known as Rizal National Science High School and appropriating funds therefore." Later, Board Members Virgilio Esguerra and Felipe Vital filed Resolution No. 97 – 140 requesting Congressman Duavit to transfer the site from Antipolo to Binangonan.On January 19, 1998, Republic Act No. 8724, "AN ACT ESTABLISHING A NATIONAL SCIENCE HIGH SCHOOL IN THE MUNICIPALITY OF BINANGONAN, PROVINCE OF RIZAL, TO BE KNOWN AS THE RIZAL NATIONAL SCIENCE HIGH SCHOOL, AND APPROPRIATING FUNDS THEREFOR" was approved.The establishment of RNSHS was in response to DECS Order No. 69, s 1993 where the Department of Education, Culture and Sports encourages the establishment of science high schools, initially among the public high schools in coordination with the Department of Science and Technology starting school year 1994−95.On its initial operation (school year 1998−99), 90 scholars (34 boys and 56 girls), six mentors, and two non-teaching personnel from the local government were housed at the Rizal State College Binangonan Campus under the supervision of Remedios C. Gervacio, head teacher III, and Dr. Remedios G. Aquino, science supervisor, as monitoring official.
