MTS History

From its humble beginnings in the 1980’s as Merry Toddlers, our school proved to be the embodiment of a true pioneer in the field of education.  BF Resort Village has always been the home of the Merry Treasure School, a haven of warmth, love and security. The first venue for the school’s pursuit for excellence was at Merry Toddler’s School, #2 Cojuangco Street.  Here, the first batch of happy toddlers along with their supportive parents, closely worked with teachers and school administrators in establishing a foundation for which the school’s motto, Every Child is a Treasure, was firmly laid and where success equates character and competence.

          After several years of the school’s journey, the administration realized the need for a bigger venue to cater to the needs of the growing student population.  For this reason, Merry Toddlers School moved to #4 C. Bautista Street.  With its spacious and well-manicured lawns, the school building became a witness to the school’s zealousness in imparting quality education to all.  Later on, to continue serving its earlier purpose, it became the school’s center for tutorial services.

          Then in 1997, the third and final move was envisioned to make the school more accessible.  This was also the year that Merry Treasure School was born, to distinguish the preschool from the elementary and high school departments. With team effort, fast bursts of energy and undaunted skills, Merry Treasure’s name became synonymous with a positive ethos, a caring climate, and a safe learning environment, enjoying visible successes.

          Like any other educational institutions, Merry Treasure School has gone through a lot of insurmountable challenges, inevitable changes and difficulties. But through it all, Merry Treasure School has surpassed them with immense blessings from God, along with the never ending generosity and support of the Santos Family. The efficiency and dedication of the School Directress Mrs. Myrna T. Santos and Mr. Jaime Santos, the School President, the undying commitment, shared vision and dynamic leadership of the faculty and staff, the collaborative partnership and collegial relationships with the parents and the school community made MTS soar to greater heights, and to continuously make a difference in the lives of its students.

          Amidst the struggles and pressures that confront schools, Merry Treasure School has remained unshaken with its vibrant dreams of providing quality education, strong spiritual foundation and character formation to its well-balanced learners. The continuously increasing number of its enrollees every school year, with God’s help and guidance, is a strong manifestation indeed, that at Merry Treasure School, where the heart is, the treasure is; and where the treasure is, the heart is.                        

          Truly, we belong to one family, the MTS Family.  Let the history of our school serve as the strong foundation for a continued and unified commitment to uphold its mission and vision.

          Students, this is Merry Treasure School’s legacy to all.  Be proud you are a Merrisian and to belong to a school where you are valued, believed in, and treated as worthwhile.

MTS School Seal


The school carries two separate seals: one for Merry Toddlers’ School (Preschool Department) and another for the Merry Treasure School (Grade School and High School).

The Preschool logo is depicted by the series of circles. Within the core is a picture of three children, three treasures-each different from the rest. Loving and nurturing them are the very reason of the school’s existence.

The succeeding complete circles stand for one of the aims of MTS, and that is the full completion of different facets of the children’s personality while they are on the preschool. Thence, the final circle with scallops represents the full “bloom” of the child expected of him as they graduate from the preschool level.

The second seal is depicted by 3 significant symbols

Letter M, in heart-shape symbolizes the heart of every MTS administrator, teachers and staff, inspired by the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, zealous of guiding every child, every treasure.

Letter T, as the star, symbolizes the Bright Morning Star, Jesus Christ who is the center of MTS education.

Letter S, the blue and white ribbons aiming towards the Bright Morning Star. They carry the school motto “Every child is a treasure.” They symbolize the quest to develop the children into morally and academically upright treasures of Heaven.
