History[edit]

[citation needed]

Aimed at fostering spirituality among the youth of Alabang and neighboring town and providing a low-cost education to the residents in the area, San Roque Catholic School was established in 1981 by then parish priest Tomas T. Gonzales. Since then, the school has taken the role as partner of the parish in the mission of evangelization and Christian education.

One hundred forty-one students comprised the first batch of students who were grouped into three sections. Part of the parish rectory was converted into classrooms for two classes while the third class was in the other side of the church. Through the initiative of Gonzales, the construction of the three-storey building began in 1982. It was ready for use the following school year for 545 students in the first year levels. The first principal was Lydia Santos, who worked hand in hand with a group of mentors.
