THE GLORY that was the old Quezon National High School.
QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW… THEN… Tayabas High School of 1902 established by the Thomasites when they first landed in the Philippines, evolved into Quezon Provincial High School and now Quezon National High School.
QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW… It was established in 1902 and is considered as the second oldest high school in the country following the Tarlac High School after barely two weeks.
QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW… Tayabas High School is covered by 2 Transfer Certificate of Titles (TCT). The first TCT No has a total area of 50,028 square meters. This is the title that covers the now known Alcala Sports Complex. The second TCT No is divided into 2 lots.
QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW… Lot A has an area of 4,159 square meters more or less. Lot B has an area of 3,116 square meters These two parcels of land with a combined total area of 7,275 square meters cover the Gabaldon Bldg. and the present school campus.
QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW… From a student population of 49, the QNHS now has exactly 9421 number of students and 368 faculty and staff. It is now considered the biggest single campus high school in the country.
QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW… The Sports Complex then was under the supervision of QNHS serving as venue of all sports activities not only in Lucena and Quezon Province but also in the whole Southern Tagalog and Palarong Pambansa Sports Competition. Those were the days. Today, Quezon Highers can no longer use this sports complex freely as this is now under the direct control and supervision of the provincial government.
QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW… Quezon High can no longer use it freely without getting authority from the provincial government. The unsolved riddles of where to hold some classes surmount. Although the rooms under the two grandstands thereat are allowed to be used as classrooms to house some classes, still these rooms cannot complement sound solutions to the problems we are currently facing.
QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW… QNHS with its number of about 10,000 students has 97 available classrooms. To house these students Quezon High has to have additional 110 classrooms. And this has been the nagging problem our school administration and the Alumni Foundation is trying to address.
As a palliative solution to this, the administration adopted a double shift class program wherein classes are held from Monday to Saturday. Immediate construction of a building with 27 classrooms is urgently needed.
QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW… The direct supervision of the provincial government in the big and small grandstands marred QNHS from using it for its daily endeavors. Adding to the burden is that water and electrical consumption of the sports complex are being charged and paid by the school out of its budgetary appropriation for Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses (MOOE) coming from the National Government
QUEZON HIGH THEN AND NOW… Theres also an uncontrolled ingress and egress of the public. Moreover, ambulant vendors using the gates along the sports complex freely roam around the campus. These are the worsening conditions we are facing today and these could only be addressed thru the help of the Provincial Government.

the officers and trustees of QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. put to task all its available resources to mark a lasting impression on the history of our beloved Alma Mater. High school days and high school life – the best days and the happiest and memorable days of our youth! Its pay back time – Lets bring back the glory of Quezon High! These are the words often heard from Alumni here and abroad.
Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. Barely a month upon election into the position as President, a group of eight (8) teachers came to my residence and presented their complaints against the newly appointed Principal, Mr. Emilio S. Ulpindo, demanding his immediate dismissal and/or replacement.
Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. Knowing that everybody has the right for a day in court, and everything could be settled on a proper forum and dialogue, a. On June 6, 2005, together with the Chairman Atty. Bella Amilhasan we called a General Meeting of all teachers and employees at the school gymnasium with the principal. All accusations and issues were taken up one by one, with the principal presenting his position and replying thereto point by point.
Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. Believing that everything was properly explained and the accused and accusers were enlightened on all issues, that meeting ended with everyone shaking hands and several even congratulated us for solving the nagging problem within the school workforce.
Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. However, after a few weeks we were informed that the demand for the removal of the principal continued and poison letters circulated all over not only inside the campus but the whole of Lucena as well. The media even took the issue and the same was a daily morning item on both television and broadcast media.
Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. B. On June 5, 2006, a second dialogue was called with the presence of Mrs. Azucena O. Romulo – Schools Division Superintendent 3 Representatives from DepEd Regional IV-A Office Members of the Board of Trustees of the Alumni Foundation

Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. Failing to present any concrete evidence to substantiate their accusations of Php 13 Million malversation by the new principal the complaining group stopped short the proceedings and just demanded the removal of the principal from Quezon National High School.
Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. The dialogue ended with the School Superintendent Mrs. Azucena Romulo losing her cool and for 45 minutes reprimanded and lectured this complaining group on proper decorum and rights and privileges of people in the teaching profession and government services.
Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. Up to this time, after more than two years, the passion of these group of teachers of removing the principal in office had not abated. It was revealed that they are the same people who are instrumental in harassing five (5) previous principals in Quezon High that led them to leave the service unceremoniously, retire early, and/or request transfer to another assignment.
Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. Furthermore, for supporting the school administration, this recalcitrant group mounted concerted efforts to malign the Presidents of the A.Samahan ng Magulang at Guro (SAMAGU) 1. Mrs. Isabel C.

The QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. officers together with the principal worked for the approval of a Php 1 million appropriation from DepEd for classroom repairs which would be utilized for the completion of the unfinished building in front of the Alumni Center intended for a library building.
Mrs. Estela Lopez-Manila, Class57 together with some Alumni overseas organized the QNHS Library Fund drive Foundation with the sole purpose of raising a minimum of Php 1 million pesos to complete the library building.
Congressman Proceso J. Alcala, Class69 pledged to match the amount to complete the building and personally shoulder whatever amount is needed for its completion.
Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. 14. Restoration of the Dormitory Building destroyed by fire BARREN AND WASTED for years, the Dormitory Building ruined by fire is planned to be restructured.
Congressman Danilo E. Suarez thru my pangungulit being a class 58ers too, pledged to restore and construct a Science Building at the site of the old Dormitory Building gutted down by fire more than a decade ago. Lets hope that with the Department of Education getting the biggest slice in the recently approved national budget, we may soon realize the restoration and completion of this building.
Presidents Report-QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. 15. Restoration of the Gabaldon Building
The QNHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. together with the principal, worked for the appropriation of Php 5 Million from DepEd for the restoration of the Gabaldon Building.
However, the total amount needed to partially restore the Gabaldon Building is P10 million. DepEd is requiring us to produce an equity of P5 million from private sources and/or from the local or provincial government unit prior to the release of said DepEd appropriation.
The present condition of the school where some students bear the brunt of having classes under the shades of a tree and even open-air improvised classroom needs to be addressed.
This is a never-ending story of the schools struggle to cater students into a conducive learning set-up. But lack of resources mars the noble thrusts of giving each learner a comfortable classroom at least.
For this, we are glad if anyone among us shares his bounty. Your donation to match the DepEd Php 5 Million spells a difference to our beloved Quezon High. Let us hear the sobs and cries of our Alma Mater in the depth of the night. She needs new rooms and even repair of the dilapidated ones.
THE CURRENT PICTURE of the Main Building turns the concerned people to grimace in sadness. It has been a sanctuary of knowledge through the decades, yet its almost ruined status affects its effectiveness in serving the youth.
ALMOST BROKEN. Windows of the main building attracts the beholders not because of physical beauty but because of broken jalousies.
BATTERED -LOOKING. Room 7s ceiling compels one to break into sobs because of its present lamentable state.
WHEN IT RAINS IT POURS. Room 9 seems almost-flooded during heavy rains causing the student-occupants to vacate the place when downpour season occurs.
STRIPPED OFF. Another sad condition of the Main Building, it looks like stripped and departed as if no one dares to take care of.
THESE ARE NOT DOORS but windows of the rooms in the Main Building that have been thwarted and ruined by time and circumstances.
A VIEW OF THE MAIN BUILDINGS backdoor and the rooms therein tear your hearts away now that they look like slum areas because of the wood patches into the windows to cover the students from heat and rains.
