San Jose National High School was an Annex of Bislig City National High School. She was created through the effort of the former Barangay Captain, the late Bebiano Sumaganday and his council of Barangay San Jose of Bislig City. As newly opened school, the Barangay Council offered the Barangay Cultural Center as her first school site starting school year 2001-2002.
Geographically, the school is located at Southern Part of Bislig City, famous with its delicious durian and high grade coal, with land area of 2.953 hectares. It is 19 kilometer away from Bislig City proper.
As an Annex of Bislig City National High School, she was managed by Mam Marlynda Q. Dela Peña and Sir Roberto E. Jimenez. However, last February 10, 2011, San Jose Annex NHS became a full pledged National High School through the effort of our former School Head, Mr. Roberto E. Jimenez; our City Schools Division Superintendent, Mam Lucia S. Castro, CESO IV; and, with the endorsement of Hon. Florencio C. Garay, Second District of Surigao del Sur Congressman.
Presently San Jose National High School is now in its twelfth year as learning institution managed and supervised by Maricel Merida the new designated School Head. The school has complete regular and open high school program offering from first year to fourth year: SST-I Teacher Almie Cabilin as her first year adviser, SST-I Jocell Banares as her second year adviser, SST-I Lilibeth Ortua as her third year adviser and SST-I Clarissa Feliscuzo as her fourth year adviser. SST-I Jhun Rino C. Betinol as Open High School Program Adviser; and, SST-I Ma. Corazon Pelenio as the librarian and subject teacher.
Majority of the students have to hike three (3) to six (6) kilometers just to reach the school. Some dropped from class due to the absence of regular transportation. However through the help of Surigao del Sur Development and Improvement Program, the school has survived to reach the targeted 2% increase of Mean Percentage Score of National Achievement Test every end of the school year. SEDIP has implemented Drop Out Reduction Plan and provided us with Science Laboratory; Technology and Home Economics; and, Industrial Arts equipment.
San Jose National High School is a recipient of Ischool Project and Gilas Foundation. The school has now nineteen work station desktop computers, one server computer and one laptop computer, and WIT Broadband Star internet connection.
The School has one (1) building with one one classroom and computer room, one (1) Science Laboratory building, Library building with Faculty Room; and, Principal's Office and Guidance Office Building, and one (1) Industrial Arts building awarded by Surigao del Sur Development and Improvement Program (SEDIP) in cooperation with the LGU of Bislig City.
The school look forward for a benevolent donors for additional one unit classroom and for more books and printed modules and for a better regular and open high school program students performance.
