Vision, Mission, Core Values, and Mandate
The Department of Education was established through the Education Decree of 1863 as the Superior Commission of Primary Instruction under a Chairman. The Education agency underwent many reorganization efforts in the 20th century in order to better define its purpose vis a vis the changing administrations and charters. The present day Department of Education was eventually mandated through Republic Act 9155, otherwise known as the Governance of Basic Education act of 2001 which establishes the mandate of this agency.The Department of Education (DepEd) formulates, implements, and coordinates policies, plans, programs and projects in the areas of formal and non-formal basic education. It supervises all elementary and secondary education institutions, including alternative learning systems, both public and private; and provides for the establishment and maintenance of a complete, adequate, and integrated system of basic education relevant to the goals of national development.
MissionWe dream of Filipinos who passionately love their country and whose values and competencies enable them to realize their full potential and contribute meaningfully to building the nation. As a learner-centered public institution, the Department of Education continuously improves itself to better serve its stakeholders.
VisionTo protect and promote the right of every Filipino to quality, equitable, culture-based, and complete basic education where:
Students learn in a child-friendly, gender-sensitive, safe, and motivating environment.
Teachers facilitate learning and constantly nurture every learner.
Administrators and staff, as stewards of the institution, ensure an enabling and supportive environment for effective learning to happen.
Family, community, and other stakeholders are actively engaged and share responsibility for developing life-long learners.

The School on the Top of the Market
In 1981, just before its second principal retired from service , she succeeded in her efforts to look for a more comfortable place for the teachers and students to stay. She was able to convince the Superintendent then, to intercede with the mayor to award the Obrero Market Building in the busy commercial district of Blumentritt, Sta. Cruz, Manila, to the Manuel L. Quezon High School. The building was intended as a market, but the vendors would not want to occupy the upper floors for obvious reasons, that no one of course would climb up to the second, third and fourth floors to buy their wares and so only the first of the building was occupied. At this time also the 2nd floor was occupied by the police for its precinct. So only the 3rd and 4th floors were available for use by the Manuel L. Quezon. Immediately upon approval, the city government restructured the Obrero Market Building into a school, leaving the police precinct in the second floor and the vendors in the ground floor.
