MSC Origins part XIII: From La Suerte to El Coco

In 2002, MSC main, which was then occupying the 4th floor of the La Suerte building was again outgrown by  its growing number of students.  Even with the old Agrix Supermarket or MSC annex, being used at the same time, an even bigger space was essential.

Fortunately at that time a four storey-building beside MSC Annex was nearing completion and the owner was looking for lessees.  The building which was later named El Coco Building was perfect for MSC!

The whole of the first floor was occupied by MSC Data Exchange (and Service Center), MSC’s sister company dubbed as a one-stop computer shop.  MSC Data Exchange was previously renting a space along Paseo de Escudero, but it fit just right in its new location.

The Mezzanine of El Coco was where the computer laboratory was transferred.  The laboratory was big enough for 40 students, or one complete section.

The second and third floors both had two average-sized classrooms each.  The fourth floor and the penthouse were used for Caregiving classes, which were first offered by MSC in mid 2002.

The move from La Suerte to El Coco consolidated MSC’s network into one location along A. Fule St. in two buildings beside each other.  The schools were there:

  • MSC High School
  • MSC Computer Training Center, and
  • the newly formed MSC Caregiving School;

The affiliate companies were there too:

  • MSC Data Exchange
  • MSC Service Center
  • MSC Communications Technology (or MSC Net) –  MSC’s Internet Service Provider

Stories from the Alumni: Joanna Erlano


Sa MSC ko natutunan na bawat isa ay may angking talento. Sa tulong ng masisigasig na mga guro, principal na si Ma’am Lerma at ni Sir Ike, naranasan naming linangin ito.

Sa MSC ko rin naranasan ang mga outbound education nasiksik, liglig at umaapaw sa adventure. Hindi lang sa kadahilanang magaganda at historical ang pinupuntahan, kundi sinisigurado nilang safe kaming lahat at uuwing maraming napulot na aral.

Sa MSC ko naranasan na ma-expose sa kung anu anong mga activities para sa sarili naming karunungan.

Sa MSC ako natutong magbigay sa kapwa sa pamamagitan ng mga projects nila na nakaktulong sa mga nais makapag-aral ngunit di sapat ang pera. Dahil sa silid booklatan, maraming mga kabataan ang naiwas sa masamang bisyo at natutong magbasa.

Dahil dyan…proud ako na may dugo akong MSC!

MSC Origins part X: MSC HS Opens at MSC Annex

In 1995, MSC was occupying the 4th floor floor of the La Suerte building along Rizal Avenue, MSC main and the former Agrix Supermarket along A. Fule St. fondly called MSC annex.

Before the end of school year 1995-1996,  a local event caused the displacement of numerous students, and they  frantically looked for high schools to enroll in.

The city mayor quickly responded with the establishment of public high schools, known then as the city high annexes to accommodate the students who suddenly had no school to go to.  However, the government  could not provide for ALL transfer students.  Parents were looking for private schools to relocate their children.  MSC stepped up by quickly accomplishing all requirements and applying for a high school permit.

Fortunately, everything went smoothly and the permit was granted in time for the opening of school year 1996-97.  MSC annex became MSC High School, with 63 students enrolled from first to third year on its first year of operation.

Classes for the high school were only until 3 or 4 pm, so the classrooms were used by techical-vocational students until 8pm.

Stories from the Alumni: Ednelyn Agulto

If you asked me what years in school I had fun with, I have to say it would have to be my high school days. I couldn’t help but look back on my four years at VYP-MSC Institute of Technology and ask myself, “What made my high school memories worth remembering?”.

I used to be a wallflower during the early part of my high school life. I was so shy and nervous but as time went by, I gained a lot of friends and experiences.

I had a lot of experiences during high school that molded my personality. I even got to know myself better because of the school programs. It gave me the full effect of being in high school. There is so much more to it than grades and school work. The school gave us the chance to show our full potentials other than academics. We got the chance to join the school’s different clubs and organizations to hone our skills, talents, leadership and yet to discover abilities. I got the chance to be a big part of the school’s newsletter and student council, play Volleyball, sing in front of the crowd which I never did in my entire life, be part of the dance group, and a whole lot more.

Staying after school for something you love to do give you a sense of pride and dedication to your school and while you’re there the memories you make and the people you meet are moments that you’ll never forget.

Of course, these experiences won’t be worth remembering if not for the friends I gained during my stay in school. I remember some of my friends wrote at the back of my notebook during break time telling me stories about their crushes – I still have those letters. We used to exchange text messages at night about our favorite koreanovela that time – Full House. We formed our chairs in circle to make chatting about random things easier for us during lunch breaks or free time. I still have bunch of stories to tell but the pages won’t be enough for all those stories.

How can I forget to give credit to our teachers and to the management for being awesome? You made learning fun and exciting for us. It wasn’t easy but it’s all worth it. Kudos to all of you!

High school was an emotional roller coaster ride. I miss it and all the crazy things we did. It was amazing and I will look back on it fondly.
