     For Secondary Education, Tuburan has four ( 4 ) Government National High Schools and one Private High School, namely : Tuburan National High School in the poblacion area and the Barangay National High Schools of Putat, Colonia and Montealegre. The St. Anthony’s Academy is a private Catholic School.

     The Tuburan Nat’l. High School enrollments had decreased significantly from 1,949 in 2008 to 1,905 in 2009 and bit increased in 2010 by 1,920 enrollments. Meanwhile, the enrollment in Barangay National High Schools continued to increase due to some transferees from the private school.


     For Elementary Education, Tuburan Elementary School is divided into two ( 2 ) Districts, namely : Tuburan I ( district one )- the Central School in the poblacion ; The Tuburan II ( district two )- the Barangay Elementary Schools.
The enrollments of District I had increased significantly from 4,527 in 2008 to 4,763 in 2009 and 5,055 in 2010. District II had slight decreased from 3,751 in 2008 to 3,683 in 2009. However, in 2010 it had increased into 3,853 enrollments.

     For Pre-school Education (Nursery & Kindergarteen) only one ( 1 ) private institution is recognized in the municipality. Tutorials are common to some pre- schoolers whose parents can afford the service fees of tutors.


     The planning area has a total of 56,877 populations, which falls on ten (10) years old to 75 years old over. Of which, only 18,296 are able to read and write which comprise the 16% of the age (10 – 75 years old). On the other hand, 12,277 or 40% are illiterate population.

     Moreover, out of 16,115 total female populations in the planning area only 59% is literate and 41% is illiterate. For male population, however, 61% is literate and 39% is illiterate. This would show that illiteracy is high among the female population compared to that of the males.

     Furthermore, the literacy is found to be higher on population, which falls between 10 to 34 years old in the planning area. (See tables following hereon).
