“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”


Gifted children from Mindanao with high aptitude for science and mathematics are the main reasons why Philippine Science High School exists.The quality of its students, the focus given to science and technology, and the scholars' duty to pursue careers in the sciences and engineering set the PSHS apart from the other schools. The education acquired by PSHS students prepares them to explore the larger dimensions of science and technology.

True to its mission, the PSHS continues to contribute to nation-building by helping the country reach a critical mass of professionals in science and technology. That this is so is partly seen in the special achievements of PSHS students and staff, some of which we highlight in this website. Their present successes foreshadow the many future successes of its alumni as leaders in the academe, research, industry, government, and the other professions


It is hoped that our students continue to serve as a guiding inspiration to young people aspiring to be PSHS scholars. And most of all, may they develop a deep love for our country and the genuine desire to serve the Filipino people .
