The 4.6-hectare learning site will serve as the campus for senior high school students and a resource center for teachers and professionals
A campus of the Philippine Science High School (PSHS) will rise in New Clark City, Tarlac, to provide opportunities among students in Central Luzon and Northern Luzon, the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) said.
The 4.6-hectare learning site will serve as the campus for senior high school students and a resource center for teachers and professionals.
Under the approved master plan, 80% of the total campus area will be open space while only 20% will be occupied.
“It will establish state-of-the-art facilities, advanced laboratories, academic spaces, training venues, and living quarters,” the BCDA said.
The new campus will also accommodate the increasing student and employee population in PSHS’ existing campus at the Clark Freeport Zone.
The BCDA added that the campus will have facilities for traditional and alternative learning, as well as indoor and outdoor setups showcasing the latest technological innovations.
The campus will feature a training center, technology hub, research center, innovation center, multipurpose academic building, administration building, summer camp area, and dormitories.
“We hope that with the new PSHS campus, we will be able to give more opportunities for quality education to deserving Filipino students especially in Central and Northern Luzon,” BCDA President and Chief Executive Officer Vince Dizon said.
