The Malayan High School of Science (MHSS) is a private secondary educational institution established in 2005, and it is managed and operated by the Mapúa Institute of Technology (MIT). It is located on a one-hectare property along P. Guazon Street (formerly Otis St.) in the district of Pandacan, City of Manila, Philippines.

Overview[edit]

The inauguration of MHSS was held on January 16, 2006, with then Manila Mayor Lito Atienza as guest speaker and MIT chairman Alfonso T. Yuchengco, former Senate president Jovito Salonga, former Prime Minister Cesar Virata, and Yuchengco Group of Companies (YGC) chairperson Helen Y. Dee in attendance. The school opened its doors to 112 freshmen students and formally launched its first school year of operation on June 14, 2006 under the administration of President, Dr. Reynaldo B. Vea, who is also the president of MIT. MHSS was established to give Filipino families the opportunity to have their children undergo a high school education of international standards with emphasis on a science-oriented curriculum.

Vision-Mission[edit]

The Malayan High School of Science shall be a global center of excellence in secondary education especially in the area of science and technology.

Program Outcomes[edit]

The Malayan High School of Science shall educate its students to have a very strong foundation in the natural sciences and the mathematics; excellent communications skills; a deep appreciation of the most important technologies of the day; an analytical mind and a creative, innovative spirit; awareness of social, global and environmental issues; love of country and humanity.

Symbol[edit]

The logo is a single helix, a form representing a separated strand of DNA at the time of its replication. From the angle in which it is viewed, the helix forms the letter "M" for "Malayan." The helix stands for biology, the H2O molecules for chemistry, the atoms for physics.All of life can be represented by the four letters A, C, T, and G, which stand for the bases of the DNA molecule: A for adenine, C for cytosine, T for thymine, and G for guanine. These letters stand for biotechnology. The binary digits or bits on the logo represent information technology. Altogether, the logo distills science and technology, the essence of the Malayan High School of Science.

Accreditation[edit]

As part of its thrust for its students to have a strong foundation in the natural sciences and mathematics, MHSS is accredited by the Mathematics Teachers Association of the Philippines (MTAP) to be the only mathematics review center for Grade 6 and high school students in the district of Pandacan, Manila.
