Mapulang Lupa National High School (formerly VNHS – Mapulang Lupa Annex) was established through the initiative of Barangay Captain Domingo R. Liwanag in 2003. The school started operation in makeshift rooms temporarily built inside the San Agustin Covered Court with 210 first year students and six teachers under the supervision of Dr. Genindina M. Sumbillo.
With the combined efforts of Dr. Alma Bella O. Bautista, the Schools Division Superintendent at that time, Honorable Sherwin T. Gatchalian, City Mayor, and late Honorable Antonio M. Serapio, Congressman of the Second District of Valenzuela, the three-storey 18 classroom building was built along Pabaya Street. In 2006, the school was granted autonomy, was separated from Valenzuela National High School, its mother school, and became Mapulang Lupa National High School. The school underwent further transformation under the leadership of Mrs. Lagrimas Bayle who succeeded Dr. Genendina Sumbillo.
