With the DepEd and former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s
initiative to have a school in every barangay, the principal of Bignay
Elementary School spearheaded the establishment of a secondary school for
Barangay Bignay in
2003. In consultation with the previous schools division superintendent, the
new high school became an annex of Valenzuela National High School.
The Valenzuela National High School – Bignay Annex began its
first year of operation in 2004. The opening of the school was realized through
the efforts of the barangay officials and the Bignay Elementary School
Principal Mr. Eduardo Q. Lita. The school was funded by the City Government of
Valenzuela through then-Mayor Jose Emmanuel L. Carlos. Its initial enrollment
was 67 (Bridge Program) and 154 1st year (regular) students; and 221 2nd year
and 3rd year students. There were five high school teachers during that time.
Dr. Vicente Tablate was designated as Teacher-In Charge and the school was
located in the vicinity of Bignay Elementary School.
In its second year of operation (SY 2005-2006), the high school
was separated from the elementary with Mrs. Lagrimas Bayle as its
Officer-in-Charge from May to August 2005. The enrollment ballooned to 885
students because of the relocation of the families along the railways of
Caruhatan, Malinta, Dalandanan, and Malanday due to the government’s Northrail
Project. The number of teachers had increased from 5 to 14. Mr. Cesar C.
Villareal took office as Officer-In-Charge from August 2005 to March 2006.
In June 2006, Ms. Grace L. Pascua was assigned as the new OIC.
During her term, the number of teachers have increased by 6 and by the start of
SY 2007-2008, Bignay High School had 24 teachers. In 2008, the enrollment
increased to 1127 with 10 academic classrooms and 29 teachers.
At present, Bignay National High School is located at Gitna,
Bignay Valenzuela City with its 7,733 sq.m. lot area. This was realized by
virtue of Resolution No. 004, S. 2007, passed by the Ciy Government, allowing
the purchase of the lot for the school. Through the leadership of former
Mayor Win Gatchalian, the 17-classroom building was built. For its
facilities, the City Government also provided the school with 50 computer
units, a spacious activity center, and a new canteen. Through the years, two
additional buildings were built inside the vicinity of the campus to cater the
growing population of Bignay and its neighboring barangays.
On July 17, 2009 former President Gloria Macapagal
Arroyo signed the
Republic Act 9660, converting VNHS-Bignay Annex into an
independent national high school to be known as Bignay National High School.
Bignay National High School is one of the first public high
schools in Valenzuela that offered Senior High School starting S.Y. 2016-2017.
On December 2016, Bignay NHS had its first annex campus located at Disiplina
Village – Bignay, which was named Bignay National High School – Disiplina
Village Annex. On July 3, 2018, Mrs. Ma. Christina C. Salonga, the former
principal of Valenzuela City School of Mathematics and
Science, became its new
principal. On August 23, 2018, BNHS-Disiplina Village Annex became an
independent national high school as Disiplina Village – Bignay National High
School as per Republic Act 11074.
