The Espiritu Santo Parochial School was formally established in 1947 by Rev. Fr. William J. Duschak, SVD, former Vicar Apostolic of Calapan, Oriental Mindoro. Initially, classes were held in the parish hall. Due to the unprecedented increase in student enrolment, the high school department, the Annex 1 and the Annex II buildings were constructed in succession. The following years, Fr. Antonio Albrecht, SVD, the Holy Spirit Sisters and the Secular Clergy efficiently administered the operation of the school. In 1973, the Religious Missionaries of St. Dominic took over its management.
Under the dynamic vision of the Dominican Sisters, the school initiated the much - needed reforms in the curricular offerings and further improve the existing physical facilities to ensure academic excellence, heighten spiritual awareness and create a healthy environment conducive to learning.
Consistent with the avowed school aims, ESPS never ceases to upgrade and vigorously improve the quality of instruction. School year 1997 saw a myriad of significant changes in the school set up both in the curricular and co-curricular programs and physical plant.
To date, the school is equipped with modern facilities namely, the state of art instructional media center, computer laboratories, fully air-conditioned offices and classrooms, well- ventilated school cafeterias and a state of the art school library and auditorium, a functional audio-visual room, a covered catwalk connecting the high school department and the Annex I building and the installation of the MIS (Management Information System) and the Internet.
In 1998, ESPS initiated a great leap towards accreditation. It was a tedious preparation and process of analysis and evaluation of the school’s curriculum, student services, facilities, faculty and staff development. In August 1999, the school passed the First Preliminary Survey of the PAASCU (Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools Colleges and Universities.) in which the school has successfully met its standards and requirements for Level I, thus making the school eligible for Formal Survey. Consequently, the school was granted the Level II status in May 2001, and was recommended for the Re-Survey three years after. Hence, in November and December 2004, the Grade School and High School Departments underwent the PAASCU Re- Survey accreditation, respectively. Both departments were granted re-accreditation for a period of five years.
The Religious Missionaries of St. Dominic formally entrusted the administration and supervision of the school to MAPSA ( Manila Archdiocesan and Parochial Schools Association) under the leadership of Msgr. .Alberto G. Salonga Jr. and with Sr. Ma. Rosalinda F. Calong, O.P. as its Principal.
Today, the school continuously commits itself towards the realization of a dynamic community coupled with selfless dedication and firm resolve to deliver quality, accessible and affordable education.
