The High School is situated both in Barangay Batinguel and adjacent to Barangay Motong and had transferred to this new site in the school year 2006-2007 under the leadership of Dr. Orlando G., Cadano.This site is far from the busy streets of the heart of the city, yet accessible to transportation through established Barangay and city roads.
History of Taclobo High School
Taclobo High school started operation in June 1999 by virtue of Republic act no. 7803 dated September 01, 1994. During its first year of operation only first year was opened and classes were held at the Mini- Theater of West City Elementary School. Two sections of 50 students each were handed by the three teachers.
In June 2000, the second year level was opened. With the increase in enrollment the additional classes were held at the second floor of the Department of the Interior and Local Government or DILG which is now Taclobo Barangay Hall and at Dumaguete City High school.
When Taclobo High School graduated its first batch, the school had 377 students, eight teachers and one teacher Aide (Mrs. Gina Cordero). Accommodating the increasing population became a pressing problem. In 2004, the local school Board purchased lots containing an area of 8,687 square meters at a price amount of four million pesos for the Taclobo High School site. The purchased lots are situated at the boundary of Barangay Batinguel and Barangay Taclobo. Additional land was purchase to cater the growth of the High School.
