The Pura Central High School situated at the Pura Central School was opened on June 6, 2005 with eighty six (86) first year students in one section. As there were no teachers yet who will permanently handle the class. Some teachers from the Estipona High School main and from the Pura Central School were temporarily assigned to teach the different subjects.
Classes were conducted at the Pura PSTA hall which was provided chairs enough for the said number of students while the three-room building was being
It was on July 12, 2005 when Mrs. Joselinda P. De Pano was temporarily deployed to EHS Annex from B.S. Aquino NHS while waiting for the approval of her transfer to Estipona High School. There was a rearrangement of the existing class program as the said teacher had to handle most of the subjects except for Science and Mathematics which were assigned to Mr. Marcelo Esteban, the head teacher of EHS.
The parents of one of the 86 students, Mary Rose Dela Cruz, came in the afternoon of July 12 to pull out their child and transfer her to Pura Academy.
The Student Government Organization (SGO) was organized with the election of officers from the president down to the councilors.
A series of reading lessons in English and Filipino was conducted to find out whether the students are slow or fast readers, it was found out that almost half of the class are slow to non-readers. So there was a need and eventually a plan to divide the class into two.
On July 21, 2005, Mrs. Gloria C. Gragasin from Vargas High School was assigned to EHSA so another rearrangement of schedule was made. Except for Mathematics, the remaining subjects were divided between the two teachers.
On August 8, 2005, the division of the class into two was materialized. Section A with 45 students was assigned to Mrs. De Pano who occupied one of the three rooms of the reconstructed building. Mrs. Gragasin became the adviser of Section B with 40 students who remained in the PPSTA Hall and eventually had to transfer to the new building although half-finished.
The PTA meeting presided over by the two teachers was conducted on August 12, 2005. An urgent meeting with the PTA officers was called for on August 26. Considering the situation, one of the parents volunteered to finish the job of putting the window-jalousies of the second room free of charge as the materials were already available.
The officers of the PTA and the SGO were inducted into office by the PSDS of Pura District, Miss Prescila I. Obligado, during the celebration of the Buwan ng Wika on August 31.
Thru the efforts of Miss Prescila I. Obligado, the dream of the people of Pura to have a public high school within the town proper became a reality.
Currently undertaken during Friday morning are remedial and reading lessons. Area/lawn development is also continuous.
To date, the initial project of the PTA of putting up a three-cubicle comfort room for the students is on-going.
