Batinguel Elementary School
Batinguel Elementary School opened its doors for the first time already back in 1939. The first classroom was in one of the residential houses in the community. When Japanese troops arrived it was closed. It resumed operation in 1945 on a new site which is up to this day the location of the elementary school. This is a 10, 000 sq. meter area that is purchased by the City Government. There were only two classes back then, Grade I and Grade II. These classes were housed on a temporary shack which was constructed by the people in the barangay.
In 1956 the school became a complete elementary school. But this lasted only for one year due to lack of enrollment. It was only in 1962 that the school went back to be a complete elementary school. Its growth in school population is steady resulting in the creation of additional sections, the hiring of additional teachers and construction of concrete school buildings. The school campus provides facilities and its atmosphere is conducive to learning and personality building. In such a setting, dedicated School Heads, Faculty and Staff take the task of achieving Department of Education (DepEd ) Mission of providing quality basic education that is accessible to all.
