History and Founding[edit]

Caloocan City Mayor Enrico Echiverri on Sunday announced the opening of the city’s first business and technical skills-oriented public high school in June.[when?]

According to Echiverri, the government-run business high school is in what was originally Urduja High School in Barangay 172, in the city’s first district.

He said that what sets the Urduja Business High School apart from other secondary high schools is that "besides following the Basic Education Curriculum ... the Urduja Business High School would also educate students with business and management subjects."

Echiverri said an apprentice of the public trade school is expected to learn essential skills and capabilities to be self-reliant and have a strong business sense.

Urduja Elementary School principal Carmelita Kilala said other specialized secondary schools, like science high schools, may emphasize additional science and math subjects into their curriculum. "With the city’s business high school, students learn not only math for example but business math, business English instead of basic English, and so on," Kilala said. "Students would also be introduced to basic and simple accounting, finance, information technology systems, marketing, organizational behavior, human resource management, and problem solving analysis," she added.

Echiverri said some 200 applicants were able to pass the rigid entrance examinations facilitated by faculty members of the Caloocan City Science High School about a month ago.

Echiverri hopes his "pet project" in partnership with the Division of City Schools would result in more entrepreneurs and businessmen being produced by Caloocan in the near future.[2]
