Silangan Elementary School stands as a beacon of education in Taguig City, offering quality primary education to its students. Located along Maharlika Road in Upper Bicutan, Taguig City, the school has a rich history and a commitment to academic excellence.


Silangan Elementary School traces its roots back to the early 1980s when Tenement Elementary School of Western Bicutan experienced a surge in student enrollment. To accommodate the growing population, then-principal Mrs. Susana Sanga advocated for an additional school building. The school administration decided to establish a new site along Maharlika Road in Upper Bicutan due to space constraints at Tenement.

Initially known as Tenement Elementary School (Annex), the school began operation during the school year 1983-1984, with grades 1-5 transferred from the main school. Mrs. Rosalina V. Vasquez served as the Officer-in-Charge under the supervision of the late Mrs. Melita Lamatao, the principal of the main school.

As enrollment continued to increase, the Annex evolved into a complete elementary school and gained independence from the main school. In 1988-1989, Mrs. Zenaida Peñafuerte became the first principal of the newly established Silangan Elementary School. Successive principals, including Mrs. Marina Evangelista, Mrs. Teresita de Jesus, Mrs. Felisa A. Binuya, Dr. Remedios A. Antonio, Mrs. Francia A. Patron, Dr. Nena P. Monte, Dr. Cipriano M. Bisco Jr., and Dr. Flordelyn T. Umagat, have since led the institution, contributing to its growth and development.
