The Santa Rosa Science and Technology High School (Sta. Rosa Sci-Tech Hi) is a Secondary Public Science High School system located in J.P Rizal Blvd. Barangay Market Area, Philippines Santa Rosa City, Laguna, Philippines. It is a DepEd-recognized science high school.

History

Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo signed into law the Republic Act No. 9083 creating the Santa Rosa Science and Technology High School( STARS Sci Teh High) on April 8, 2001. Cong. Uliran T. Joaquin of the First District of Laguna was its principal author.

The school started in the school year 2002-2003 through the initiative and financial support of the Local Government of Santa Rosa led by former mayor Leon C. Arcillas.

Current Status

The Santa Rosa Science and Technology High School is currently being headed by Dr. Yolanda L. Sambajon as its Principal II. Mrs. Sambajon holds a Doctor of Education degree and was the former principal of Bayside National High School in Calamba City before being reassigned to SRSTHS. An emotional Welcome Ceremony has been given to her last June 27, 2008, which also became a farewell of the doctor to her colleagues in the Division of Calamba City.

Ms. Socorro B. Escape was the Officer-In-Charge of the school while there is no principal being appointed yet (summer of 2008). Dr. Efren Valencia, the former OIC-Director II, resigned from the position and concentrated his efforts on his rank as Educational Supervisor II of DepED CALABARZON. Upon the formal installation of Dr. Sambajon, Ms. Escape became her adviser and concurrently is the Prefect of Discipline of the school.

The school temporarily occupies the former APEX building and is now directly under the Division of the City of Santa Rosa. It, however, maintains its science and technology curriculum, rules and regulations and faculty.
