The congressional S&T Committee, headed by Zambales representative Antonio Diaz, also admitted two other proposals to build science high schools in the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) and the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM).
Republic Act 8496 or the Philippine Science High School Act mandates one science high school in each of the 16 administrative regions of the Philippines. In compliance, the S&T committee decided last Tuesday to pass the proposals for the establishment of science high schools in Bulacan, Zambales, CAR, and ARMM since they do not as yet have science high schools.

The Cordillera region has already a Regional Science High School, but another school under DOST will most likely be put up soon.
