Arellano High School is a public school which is formerly called Manila North High School during the pre-World War II era. It is located at Teodora Alonzo Street in Santa Cruz, Manila.

This is a celebration of memories thru music and motion with the theme: "Bridging the Past and the Present for a Brighter Future."

The event will launch the souvenir magazine that will capture the good old times and the camaraderie formed in the school. This will feature recent and old photos, articles, greetings and other interesting information such as inspiring stories of our fellow alumni living abroad, the dedication and triumphs of our alumni as overseas expatriates and workers, entrepreneurs, professionals and winners in all areas of society and the common “tao” that needs to be heard and continue to enthuse here and abroad. The unwavering support of the Association and the Scholarship Foundation will always be part of the magazine.

“High school life is one of the most memorable events of our life. Let us rekindle it together with our school mates. Be part of our unique souvenir magazine, have your photos and stories published!” Julieta Zapanta-Cruz, the Class 1984 president announces.

I graduated at Arellano High School in 1980.Since then my family immigrated here in US. I am currently leaving here in San Antonio, Texas. I recently graduated from University of Phoenix with my MBA. I was wondering if you can help me to get the address of the Arellano High School. I had been trying to get a copy of Diploma and a transcript of my High School. It’s been a long time since went back in the Philippines. When will be Grand reunion for AHS? Maybe this is the year I have been waiting for.
