About Us > Our Story



The Maragondon Parochial School, Inc., formerly known as the Assumption Convent School, was founded in 1986 by Rev. Fr. Corsie S. Legaspi who was the parish priest of the Our Lady of the Assumption Parish.


The school, in her first year of existence, S.Y. 1986 –1987, was only offering Pre-School Level and was under the guidance and supervision of a Dominican Sister, Sister Juanita del Monte, who acted as the president and directress of the school.


Since Sister Juanita del Monte belongs to a Dominican Congregation, our uniforms were based on the uniforms of the Dominican School in San Juan, Manila.


Later on, the name Assumption Convent School was changed to Maragondon Parochial School on June 24, 1987. After then, the parish priest of the same time, took the responsibilities as the director of the school. 


In the years 1989-1992, MPS was under the supervision of Rev. Fr. Paul D. de Leon as the principal and director as well. In his time, he hired Miss Irinea A. Arañas as the  school  consultant  until the time he left for his new parish assignment on January, 1992.

For about five years, Rev. Fr. Luisito C. Gatdula handled the school from the year 1992 – 1997. He appointed Ms. Irinea A. Arañas as the school principal.
