The new state-of-the-art secondary institution, which appears to the country?s ?math and science high school,” will replace the Valenzuela City Science High School (ValSci). The 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. Department of Education secretary Armin Luistro said he was impressed by the city?s investment in education. ?Aside from this new city school, Valenzuela City has found solutions for the decongestion of schools within their area through the ?busing system,? by transferring students from one school to another,? Luistto said. Valenzuela City mayor Rex Gatchalian said the City School for Math and Science was the ?best education investment their city has ever made.? 769 students from Valenzuela City Science High School, which had 13 classrooms and a single science laboratory, will be the beneficiaries of this new school construction. Luistro added, ?My prayer is that Valenzuela City School of Mathematics and Science may produce the best and brightest scientists of the country.? ]]>
