Location: Gen. Luna Street, Ususan, Taguig City.

Ususan Elementary School rose from a donated 4,321.25 sq. meter lot located at Ususan, Taguig Rizal. It was June 25, 1931 when formal schooling in Grades I and II classes started in a make-shift schoolhouse constructed on the said site. Miss Elpidia Carlos and Miss Ana Bunyi were the first mentors during those struggling days. Thereafter, permanent building with two- standard classrooms were erected, housing primary classes only. The first principal then was Elpidia C. Tanyag and through her initiative more classrooms were added from that period to 1963 to cater the growing population.

The old building was later abolished and under the provincial board resolution 1077 during the administration of Governor Isidro Rodriguez, Mayor Monico C. Tanyag, Mrs. Caridad P. Umali- Principal and Barrio Captain Daniel Castillo. Rodriguez Building was constructed on February 5, 1969 and was finished on October 17, 1969. From that day onwards, the same school building has been existing on the same area. However, other buildings were constructed like the Carino Building, Multi-purpose building and Cayetano building replacing the old Antonio building. Ususan Elementary School is fortunate enough to be the beneficiary of 3-classroom building donated by Ayala Land Build a House Project constructed on November, 2003 and finished on June, 2004.

Another 3-storey building with 9 classrooms was erected on June 11, 2004 and was inaugurated June, 2005 through the LOGO Find project funded by the World Bank. Throughout the years, Ususan Elementary School has been headed by dedicated school heads in the persons of Mrs. Adoracion Capistrano, Mrs. Simeona Capco, Miss Melita Lammatao, Mr. Bayani Z. Pili, Miss Lydia G. Pili, Mrs. Teresita M. de Jesus, Mrs. Flerida P. Silvestre, Mrs. Felisa A. Vinuya and the present principal, Mrs. Josefina R. Granada.
