The 3rd year student's of MOGCHS designed this site to give the viewers idea what is MOGCHS about?


Mogchs is the oldest school found at the heart of the City of Golden Friendship, Cagayan de Oro City.I think the estimated number of students from SY 2007-08 is about 8,400. Our respected principal, Mr. Pedro H. Montejo has a lot of problems to cope up from this school year. I think, his no.1 priority in this school year is to provide infrastructures for the students. Next to it will be the discipline. Some students are joining fraternities that might involve such cases that might ruin the name of MOCGHS. In this case, this people should be disciplined by the school and also from their respected homes. MOGCHS is located in the heart of the City of Cagayan de Oro, a total area of 7.3629 hectares. Present assessment of such area indicates the land area to extend from the north side of MOGCHS, which is the Pelaez Sports Center, to the Provincial Capitol area which form part of the provincial Government. The Misamis Oriental High School, now the Misamis Oriental General Comprehensive High School, was founded through the initiative of the late Don Apolinar Velez y Ramos, the first elected Governor of Misamis province that then composed the present provinces of Misamis Oriental and Misamis Occidental. The school was formally inaugurated on December 15, 1909 with an impressive array of national officials attending the ceremony, headed by American Governor-general William Cameron Forbes. The early high school courses included the intermediate grades but in 1926, due to an increase in enrolment and lack of school buildings, the intermediate students were separated from the high school administration. The school had its first graduation in 1922. The first American Principal was Henry Smith, and the last was William Goldrich. The first Filipino principal was Simeon Vale (1928). On June 1, 1965, Republic Act 4247 converted the MOHS into a national high school to be known as the Misamis Oriental  General Comprehensive High School. On July 1970, late afternoon classes under the auspices of the provincial Government and continued up to school year 1981-82. However, the Schools Division Superintendent of Misamis Oriental, strongly recommended the conversion of the said school into a Provincial High School, to be supported by the province. It is now known as the Misamis Oriental provincial High school (MOPS), late afternoon classes, occupying the same school site as MOGCHS. In 1990-91, MOPHS was transferred to Balingasag. The first alumnus Principal was Mr. Francisco C. Galarrita. He was followed by Mrs. Nenita Ilg. Dael, Mr. Pedrito D. Acac, Mrs. Angela M. Paler, and Mr. Maximo L. Natindim, Jr. (2nd alumnus principal. The present Principal, Mr. Pedro H. Montejo, continued pooling resources and made strong representations with outside linkages for infrastructure and other development facilities to maintain the school’s premier standing. The unique identity of the Misamis Oriental General Comprehensive High School made it the biggest high school in the Division of Misamis Oriental. Besides being the oldest (founded 1909), it is strategically located in the heart of the city of Cagayan de Oro, thus its populace is generally coming from the city. The increasing number of enrollees was seen not much of an advantage. The common problems of public education were observed from the shortage of chairs to deteriorating quality of education.However, despite its weaknesses, the school is still trying to support and commit to the DepEd’s thrusts and programs as well as taking every opportunity offered by different stakeholders, and has thus become known as the home of the champions.”


A Defender of the Poor  Don Apolinar Velez was born on Jan 23, 1865, in Cagayan, Misamis. He is the son of Blas Velez and Saturnina Ramos. He was educated at Fra. R. Zueco’s private school of Attorney Leoncio Roa, and S. Jis de Ortega’s college. In 1884, he was a clerk in the office of the court of first instance of Misamis. From 1886 to 1891, he held the positions of oficial de mesa, interpreter, and defensor depresos pobres. Previous to that time, he held the post of second lieutenant of infantry of the Spanish army, and was decorated with the Medalla de Mindanao.In 1898, he was made chief of the division of justice of the provincial council of the Revolutionary Government two years later, he was promoted to the rank of major of the revolutionary army and chief of the battalion “El Mindanao.” From 1901 to 1906, Don Apolinar Velez held the post of provincial secretary after which he was elected governor of Misamis for two terms.  During the 1928 election, in response to the demands of his sympathizers, he ran for the post of municipal president of Cagayan, and was easily elected. He ran for the position of member of the provincial board last June and was elected to hold office for the next three years Don Apolinar spends his leisure hours playing chess or billiard, or reading books. He plays the piano, like everybody else in the family. He married Leona Chaves y Roa on May 10, 1887, thus joining two of the biggest families in Misamis.


MOGCHS envisions to being a strong institution, producing values-oriented students, who commit to the development of Culture of Excellence.


Guided by this vision, this school shall lead in the implementation of DepEd’s curricular programs for quality and relevant education to develop responsible citizens capable of improving quality of life and meeting the needs of society which MOGCHS shall realize through excellence of instruction in a nurturing and caring environment.

Historical Background of MOGCHS " The Home Of The Champion's "

   The Misamis Oriental High School, now the Misamis Oriental General Comprehensive High School was founded through the initiative of the late Don Apolinar Velez Y. Ramos, the first elected governor of Misamis Oriental and Misamis Occidental. At the time, only primary education could be obtained in Cagayan de Misamis. After the 4th grade, students had to go either in Manila or to Cebu to continue their studies. Consequently, only the wealthy could send their children to these places and the poor had no opportunity to pursue their studies. This, Governor Velez sought to remedy by putting up the first secondary school in Misamis Province. So he went to Manila the set of then highly centralized Insular Government and conferred with the education officials and finally had an audience with the American Governor-General- William Cameron Forbes. The Governor however, agreed to release only P16, 000.00 for this project estimated to cost P32, 000.00 with the province raising the half or a counterpart fund and setting up a sizeable site for the school building and athletic field. 
After almost three years of intensive fund campaign Governor Velez was able to put up the first building in the present site of the Misamis Oriental General Comprehensive High School. The site is located in Lot No. 426, Cad. 387, Case 2, Cagayan Cadastre with a total area of 73, 629 hectares.
On the north and northeast side of the building where the Pelaez Sports Center now proudly stands where the vegetable gardens which were owned by several families- the Abrios, Caballeros, Corrales, Dalmans, Damiles, Galans, Mabulays, Pacaliogas, Ralutos, Salusos, Raypons, Saarenas, Tabiques, Velez and Yabuts. They sold their lots for a very low price as their contribution to the project to Ex-Judge Nicolas Capistrano who did not hesitate to exchange the whole area with a less valuable lot in Agusan, Misamis Oriental.

   The school was formally inaugurated on December 15, 1909 with the impressive array of national officials attending the ceremonies. The prominent guests included the American Governor-General William Cameron Forbes, Speaker Sergio Osmena Sr, Hon. Manuel L. Quezon of Tayabas, Hon. Jose Clarin of Bohol, Hon. Manuel Tinio of Nueva Ecija, Hon. Dionesio Jacosalem of Cebu and Tomas Earshaw of Manila.

   Classes were opened for the intermediate grades and for first year high school. The second, third and fourth year classes were added as soon as funds becomes available. The First Filipino teachers in the intermediate grades were Esperanza Roa Ongpin and Juanita Fenandez -Neri. The School had its first graduation in 1922 with Pilar Gaerlan, Laureana Rabe - Canoy, Milagros Roa Solidium. Messrs Francisco Abejay, Sotero Bacas, Roque Chavez, Ernesto Fernandez, Daniel Gallarita, Clemente Galindo, Pedro Pimentel, Federico Roa and Juan Uriarte as the fist graduates. The early high school course included the intermediate grades but in 192, due to an increase in enrolment and lack of school building, the intermediate students were separated from the high school administration.

   American educators charted its course during the years of American colonization but later on they turned over this responsibility to the Filipinos. These were the Principals who provided leadership and guidance by their administration.
