The University of Santo Tomas - Education High School, popularly known as UST-EHS or UST Educ High, is a laboratory school for the training and formation of future Catholic teachers. At the same time, it extends opportunities to the bright but financially challenged students through its affordable fees and scholarship programs. EHS is staffed by supervising teachers, who are experts in their fields of specialization.

EHS was among the Top 10 performing private secondary schools in Manila based on the results of the National Achievement Test and the National Career Assessment Examination in the School Year 2011 - 2012.

In the School Year 2010 - 2011, EHS adopted the Understanding by Design framework. In the School Year 2012-2013, it offered Grade 7 in compliance with the order of the Department of Education regarding the implementation of K + 12 enhanced basic education curriculum in all Philippine schools.


The Education High School (EHS) is a separate institution from the UST High School. EHS was established to give quality Catholic education to those deserving students who cannot afford to pay the fees required by other schools. It also serves as the training ground for fourth year BSE students of the UST College of Education. This laboratory school was established during the time of Rector Magnificus Rev. Fr. Angel De Blas, O.P. through the help of the Dean of the College of Education, Rev. Fr. Aurelio Valbuena and Mrs. Caridad Sevilla, the EHS principal, and the different critic teachers of the College of Education. Classes commenced on August 1, 1950

A number of faculty members from the College comprised the first set of critic teachers for the different subject areas in the EHS. They were: Dr. Mercedes G. Santamaria, Dr. Clemencia J. Colayco, Dr. Rosario D. Bondoc, Ms. Concepcion Leonor, Mrs. Antonia P. Villanueva, Ms. Consuel Perdices

The first regular teachers were Ms. Concepcion Alba, Ms. Rosario Mauricio, Ms. Lourdes Z. Sevilla and Ms. Teresita R. Villamil.

There were 361 students in the first enrollment of the EHS. There were ten (10) sections in the first year, two (2) sections for the second year and two (2) for third year. Half of those sections were attended in the morning by girls, half in the afternoon by boys.

In order to give authentic religious and practical leadership training and to strengthen unity and cooperation among the students, religious and secular organizations were founded. Among them were Student Catholic Action Units for the boys and girls and the Knights of Jesus for the Boys. Mr. Arturo De Leon served as their Adviser. The Boy Scouts were adopted to give some training to male students.

Through the years, the EHS has been in the forefront of championing the cause of Catholic education in the Secondary School level. As the University of Santo Tomas sails toward its grand fourth centennial in 2011, the EHS will continue to put premium on developing competence, commitment and community involvement coupled with the core values of dignity, justice, patriotism, respect, piety, responsibility, simplicity and honesty among its students.

Alma Mater Song[edit]

Education High School Hymn[edit]

Hail Education High! Thy name will never die

Thy sons and daughter true will always stand by you

And let the cross of love and peace,

Educate all men for what is right.

Radiate the lore from U.S.T. to build a true divine insight.

Hold high the torch of truth to flash its light abroad

And spread the lucid rays to shine on every road.

We'll raise our voices loud and clear EHS our Alma Mater dear.

We'll spread thy name, cherish thy name,

To this we pledge our loyalty

Raise high the hand that molds and show its glorious sign

Make strong the heart that guides and kneel before thy shrine,

Then let the cross of love and peace, educate all men for what is right.

Radiate the lore from U.S.T. to build a true divine insight...

To build a true divine insight.
