BRIEF HISTORICAL STATEMENT
UNION HIGH SCHOOL OF MANILA
The Union High School of Manila is housed in a three-story reinforced concrete building and ideally located for educational purposes at 709 Tennessee Street, just a block from Taft Avenue, in the beautiful Malate District. It is close to the University of the Philippines, Union Theological Seminary, Union College and a number of government bureaus, hospitals and schools which cluster around the University.
The Union High School was established in June, 1919, when the four-year high school course was opened, though at the time it was generally referred to as the High School Department of the Union Theological Seminary. It was given government recognition on January 7, 1926. A night department was opened in June, 1923; given government recognition on July 19, 1926; and was discontinued after March 1931.
The school had a new beginning when it was officially incorporated on September 12, 1928 under the name of “UNION HIGH SCHOOL OF MANILA” with a Board of Trustees composed of five members – two from Presbyterian Mission in the Philippines, one from the United Brethren Mission, another from the Disciples of Christ and the fifth named jointly by the three missions. Dr. George W. Wright was its first President. Although it continued to be united in spirit with its mother, the Union Theological Seminary, it was thereafter under a separate board of trustees and administration, so that up to the present, it is an institution by itself, having a personality of its own, distinct from that of the other Union Schools.
In 1946, when World War II was over, the school reopened. It became an integral part of the Philippine Christian College in 1948, but pledged to carry on the fine tradition of Union High School of Manila, especially the name and goodwill it had established during the last quarter of the century.
An improvement and expansion program was started in 1968. The modernization of the school plan provided greater comfort and better learning for the students.
On October 6, 1977, the Philippine Christian College was granted its university status. Union High School of Manila became the High School department of Philippine Christian University.
On June 1, 1991, the Kiddie Kollege, the Union Elementary School, and the Union High School of Manila were integrated into one academic unit: the PCU – Integrated Science School (PCU-ISS). Science” was added to its name because of the University Thrust of Science and Technology.
On June 1, 2003, PCU-Integrated Science School was renamed Union Science High School of Manila. It has adopted a Science and Math-based curriculum in the last five years from 2003 through 2008 to consider the growing call and need for national development through an intensified Science/Math and Technology program. This Science enriched curriculum helps equip the clientele with knowledge, skills and attitudes that promote scientific, analytical, and creative mind towards the development of a globally competitive work force in the 21st century.
Finally, in 2008, in response to the clamor of its alumni, and as indicated in the Government Recognition, the high school department of PCU regained its original name – Union High School of Manila.
In 2011, Union High School of Manila was given a Level III – Re-Accreditation status by the Association of Christian Schools, Colleges and Universities – Accrediting Agency Inc., (ACSCU_AAI) and the Federation of Accrediting Agencies in the Philippines (PAAF).
Finally, this year, 2015, Union High School of Manila, together with the whole Philippine Christian University, was given ISO recognition.
Union High School of Manila is looking forward its 100th year come 2019. Throughout the years of its existence, UHSM enjoys a high reputation as a private high school for boys and girls. Indeed, the school was founded for the purpose of giving worthy students a place where they could attend high school and receive in addition, a thorough training in citizenship and in Christian ways of living. And though Union High School is a Protestant institution, students of all beliefs, Catholics, Aglipayans, Protestants, and others are equally welcome and their religious views are respected as shown by the fact that Catholic students have always constituted a large part of the student body, asking only that they come with an earnest desire to learn and to serve the truth.
