South Crest School[1] is a private primary and secondary educational institution in Muntinlupa City in the Philippines. It is situated between two subdivisions, Agro Homes and Soldiers' Hills, thus giving it two addresses: 101 Canary St, Agro Homes Subdivision, Putatan, Muntinlupa City and MBAI Commercial Complex, Soldiers Hills, Muntinlupa City.

It was founded in 1983 as the Agro Homes Early Education Center (AHEEC) and since then has evolved into one of the leading schools in Muntinlupa. The students have been placed among the Ten Most Outstanding Students of Muntinlupa City for the past 14 years, almost annually.


The late Major-General Santiago R. Madrid Jr., together with his family, settled at Soldiers' Hills Subdivision after his stint as commander in Cebu Island. When his first child, Judy, was already of schooling age, they began searching for a school they could entrust her in. To their dismay, not one was present in the vicinity of Soldiers' Hills and even in the adjacent Agro Homes.

Wanting to give their child the best education she could have, they considered starting a preschool. Mrs. Remedios Madrid, the general's wife, was particularly confident for she was a teacher herself. Thus, armed with municipal government's permission (Muntinlupa was still a municipality then) and sheer determination, they founded the Agro Homes Early Education Center in 1982. Mrs. Madrid invited some of her teacher friends to operate the fledgling learning center, teaching basic skills such as writing, speaking, mathematics and values. In the short span of two years, the school earned the respect and trust of parents within the area for its excellence in instructing children.


In 1992, after requests from parents and pupils to expand the service of AHEEC to the community, the school administration established Elementary and Secondary Levels, registering itself under the name South Crest School. To meet the needs of the growing student population then, they expanded the school complex to the former cogonal area of Soldiers' Hills (whose remnants are still preserved today as a study area for students and as a site of observation for biology activities).
