Bulusan High School, A Humble Beginning

From humble beginning, Bulusan High School started year 2000 at the soil-filled up rice field at Dancalan, Bulusan, Sorsogon with only one temporary building made of wood and nipa for freshmen. It was nicknamed Laboy, which means mud, by the locals because it is located at the very muddy rice field of the town and it exemplifies its humble beginning. The lot was donated by Mr. Albertini Montenegro Jr. who headed the school for five years. It was followed by three room semi-permanent building donated by the Local Government through the former town's mayor, Hon. Juan G. Guysayko to accommodate the surging enrollment. The school was recognized by the national government through House of Representative Bill No. 3361 authored by Jose Solis by committee report 245 co-authored by Lagman and De Guzman.
Due to absence of public secondary school in Bulusan town proper other than that offered by Bulusan National Vocational and Technical School which could only accommodate few qualified students, young Buluseños decided to enroll at San Roque and Dr. Espeña (Buhang) High School and even to neighboring towns. It is noted that in the vicinity of Bulusan Poblacion there was only Jose S. Reyes Memorial Foundation (Inc.) School, a private institution, which offers secondary course.
Albertini Montenegro Jr. was replaced briefly by Veronica Gallanosa, faculty member, and followed by Mirando Fajardo. In 2006, Ave E. Mendizabal took over as a school principal. The first commencement exercises was held March 2003.
