The first building in Mabini Street had housed the first 150 students and 4 faculty members. The courses offered were Stenography, Typewriting, Bookkeeping and complete academic secondary course. In the same year, it was given government recognition. One year after her foundation, the school held its first graduation. This marked the beginning of its tradition.
