The city of Valenzuela opens new, state-of-the-art Mathematics and Science public school. This four-storey, twenty-classroom building includes chemistry, biology, physics, and robotics laboratories equipped with six Smart Boards that already have Internet access. The campus is envisioned to be part of the country’s most high-tech and advanced Mathematics and Science schools in the country according to the Department of Education.
The school construction is under Valenzuela City’s Education 360º Investment Program that includes feeding programs, the provision of school supplies, trainings for students, parents, and teachers.
Valenzuela City Mayor Rex Gatchalian explains their 360º Investment Program and says, “This is a large-scale investment to shore up the local education system.” He adds that the City School for Math and Science was the “best education investment their city has ever made.”
