Aside from the free books and tuition fee including miscellaneous fee, PSHS also provides a stipend of P500 per student per month. This is in addition to the living allowance each student gets, which ranges from P500 to P2,500 depending on the socio-economic status of the family of each PSHS scholar.
Furthermore, PSHS-Baguio also provides free dormitory to students who reside away from Baguio. “We are renting an apartment, with separate rooms for our male and female students, who live far away from the city”, Rotor said.
Though the PSHS-Baguio is still temporarily housed at the Baguio City National High School (BCNHS) San Vicente Annex campus, Rotor also affirmed that it is their goal to establish their own campus before the school year ends.
According to Rotor, the PSHS-Baguio, through its mother agency, the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), is now finalizing the processing of the acquisition of a lot in Irisan Barangay . It already has an initial fund set-up for the putting up of a school building in the said area.
Rotor also bared that DOST Secretary Mario Montejo personally visited their campus last week and discussed with them the issue of putting up their own PSHS campus in the city.
Meantime, Rotor also announced that they are also now open for application for PSHS National Competitive examination for their 2012 scholars, wherein application, of students who finished third year high school at the top 10 percent of their class, will be accommodated until the July 15 deadline. *(JDP/LD-PIA CAR)

Mr. Rommel Lengwa, PSHS-CAR Administrator explained that the students usually taken in are those with very high aptitudes in science and mathematics. Now on its pioneering stage, the school has taken in 66 students all over the Cordilleras to start the system rolling.
