Bia-o Primary School is located in one of the poorest puroks of Barangay San Jose, General Santos City where almost all the pupils are B’laans and only few are Christians. Their parents are caretakers of land and charcoal making is their primary source of income. Many of their children could not even go to school for their parents don’t have permanent work. This School Year 2011 – 2012, we have 197 pupils from Grades I to IV and 24 pupils in the Pre-school. We have one-classroom building and two makeshift classrooms for instruction with 4 active, committed and dedicated teachers and a Head Teacher I as school head.
