Why is Pantingan Elem. School a consistent topnotcher of NAT (National
Achievement Test) in the Division of Bataan?
Pantingan E/S is nine km. away from the national highway. It is found within a barangay
where paradise nestles. The school is surrounded with the wide green rice fields, forest –
green mountains and a solitary, soft- flowing river. It is a perfect, inspiring place which brings
peace and serenity.
But this panoramic view does not hide the socio- economic status of the pupils studying
in the said school. Most of their parents are poor farmers and unskilled workers. They only
depend on what they can harvest and what work their neighbors can offer.
