About The Unit

MSU-Saguiaran Community High School is one of the thirteen MSU-External Units and one of the pioneering high schools of Mindanao State University. The establishment of MSU-Saguiaran is a fulfillment to the objective of the University to facilitate the integration of the Muslim cultural community group into the national body.

The establishment of MSU-Saguiaran CHS was a fruit of the strong efforts of the late Mayor of Saguiaran, Hadji Ali Salacop Dimacaling and the first President of the Mindanao State University, Dr. Antonio Isidro, Before the absorption of the school. By the Mindanao State University in 1973, its early operations (1967-1969) were under the supervision of the District Supervisor of DECS, Supervisor Guro. Thus, some of the first teachers at the school were teachers from Saguiaran Central Elementary School. Upon its official absorption the Mindanao State University, able, qualified, and competent faculty members were hired at the expense of the university for the achievement of quality education (MSU-Office of the Assistant Vice chancellor for Academic Affairs, 1996). From then on, the school continued on being one of the feeder high schools of the Mindanao State University Main Campus. In fact it is from this school where the first Maranao Summa Cum Laude graduate of the Mindanao State University completed his secondary education.

Originally MSU-Saguiaran was located behind the Municipal Hall of Saguiaran, Lanao del Sur and was consisted of few classrooms only. To meet the increasing number of students and upon realizing the necessity of playground, the late Attorney Ibra Sani-Carim Indad, upon assumption into office as the elected mayor of Saguiaran in 1986, initiated the relocation of the school to an area of three-fourth hectare donated by the late Datu Cade Lampo. The school is located along the Marawi-Iligan Road. As of now MSU-Saguiaran Community High School is composed of 37 faculty members and 10 administrative staff headed by Dr. Rasmia M. Yahya-Muti, the school principal and Prof. Noraisah M. Cader, the assistant school principal.
