Salvador Trade School is an institution accredited by TESDA that offers Technical and Vocational Education and Training Programs (TVET) under the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).
Nineteen Hundred and Sixty Five (1965), during one of the routinary visit of the late Congressman Laurentino Badelles, Ex-mayor Antonio Abadiano an Agricultural Graduate from Central Luzon Agricultural College requested the said congressman to established an Agricultural School in Salvador, Lanao del Norte so that sons and daughters of poor farmers can be given a secondary education with less expenses, technically trained, cheap but profitable.
Because of the abundance of water supply in Inasagan and Cabongbongan springs, now Camp Allere the populace was unanimously recommending said place for the school site. Before congressman Badelles left for Iligan city, he instructed mayor Abadiano to secure the approval of the proposed school site while he will continue with the Draft of his Bill.
Though the purpose was good and noble, the people were reluctant to part with their land, even if it will be paid by the government. They have strived hard and overcome all difficulties so that their love ones can claim a land at their very own.
Be that as it may, the draft of the bill was post through minus the school site. Congressman Badelles was only too eager and interested to amend the bill as only eight hectares will be required.
On January 1965, Congressman Badelles sponsored House Bill No. 8376 which easily passed the 3rd reading in both houses of the congress and the senate. Though house bill no. 8376 was approved with enabling Act 04440 on June 19, 1965 its implementation was delayed. Politicians come and go and mayor Abadiano was relieved by ex-mayor Apolonio Yap who wanted to open the Trade School. But Father Reilly with a private school requested that if a government school be opened he be allowed to graduate his first fourth year students as he has spent plenty of money for the construction of said school. Mayor Yap was again relieved by Mayor Pangantapan Tawantawan. Situation then in Salvador had greatly changed. Prices of commodities had gone up that even the matriculation and tuition fees were raised. Then how can the sons and daughters of the poor farmers around pursue a secondary education?
Civic minded citizens of Salvador grouped together for a meeting with the issue of establishing a government secondary school in the municipality and all agreed that the Municipal Council petition Congressman Dimaporo to set aside funds for the opening of a Trade School.
The Salvador Trade School, Salvador, Lanao del Norte was formally opened on July 6, 1971. The school was pioneered by four teachers and seven support staff with an enrolment of 72 students housed temporarily in the Salvador Central Social Hall under the administration of the late superintendent Sangki Singayao and under the direct supervision of the principal Pawadji H. Hadja. The school has its annual appropriation of P 50,000.00.
On August 9, 1971 misunderstanding between Christian and Muslim occurred and people in the municipality evacuated to other provinces including students of the school.
