Filipinos have always carried a baffling fascination for the supernatural. They, especially the young generations, grew up hearing scary tales of the "pugot na pari" who would roam the cemeteries at night or the white lady who would appear in front of the mirror if you stayed up so late at night. The classic book series Philippine Ghost Stories might have also been one of your precious possessions!
The school grounds did not escape such tales and if you would ask students, it seems that every school campus has their own taste of supernatural and paranormal phenomena.
This article is a continuation of the post on the most haunted schools in the Philippines.

Perhaps one of the most famous schools for campus ghost stories is De La Salle University. The old buildings in the school grounds have witnessed countless tragedies during World War II and so almost all buildings are believed to have their own resident ghosts.
Universities and school campuses are oftentimes the home of the most spine-chilling ghost stories in the Philippines that will no doubt keep you up at night. Creepy accounts from students and school staff who were believed to have experienced paranormal phenomena in the said schools can spread like wildfire and stay within (and even outside) the campuses for a long long time.
Which do you think are the most haunted schools and campuses in the Philippines?
Here is our list of the creepiest school settings according to student tales.
1. St. Paul's University
Perhaps one of the most common horror stories we have heard is the white lady appearing in front of the school mirrors of St. Paul's University. Well, anyone would be horrified to see that, but St. Paul's staff have taken extreme measures to avoid this paranormal encounter.
