The high school department, which is in the third floor, has been opened in 2010. Pre-school students were in the first floor, and primary and intermediate students (1-6) on the second. During school events, they build a temporary stage for the first floor. Such events are Festival of Words, Christmas Party, Graduation, etc. Sometimes, they held their events on the second floor, but with no stage; such events were like Parent-Teacher Conference and School Mass. Two computer rooms were built: one in the second and third floor. The library is on the third floor, as well as the Science Lab. High school students were permitted to plant at the rear of the school, where the E.P.P. building stands.
