The School Profile
Considering, however, the district differences in educating the deaf and the blind student specially in terms of instructions, communication modalities and specialized learning needs, efforts got under way toward the inevitable separations of special education program of the blind from that of the hearing impaired. PNSB came into existence and became a fully independent school on July 10, 1970 by virtue of the passage of R.A. 3562 entitled “AN ACT TO PROMOTE THE EDUCATION OF THE BLIND IN THE PHILIPPINES.”
As the country’s pioneer and leading exponent in the education of visually impaired Filipino children, it serves as the pilot educational resource and service development center for the ultimate integration of the visually limited into the mainstream of the social spectrum. It is charged with the task of catering the educational needs of the blind as an integral part of General Education with specific role of taking active participation in the nation building through the transformation of the blind youths into productive citizens of the country despite their unique deviation from so-called average.
