The name New Dauis originated from their beloved hometown Dauis, Bohol. At first, most of the settlers are all Boholanos. At that time, New Dauis was a sitio of Barangay Magading.
On December 30, 1972, New Dauis was created into a barangay. It was separated from its mother barangay Magading and partially extracted from barangay Ogao through the leadership of Mr. Martin Arangcon. The appointed barangay Captain was the late Mr. Eufronio Bongay with his six Barangay Councilmen, namely: Mr. Cecilio Arangcon; Mr. Hilario Baranda; Mr. Antonio Binayon; Mr. Bernardo Homigop, Sr.; Mr. Antioco Libosada; Mr. Mamerto Abratiguin and its Barangay Secretary Mr. Paulino Micarandayo and the Barangay Treasurer Mr. Juan Arancon.
In the year 1977, the appointed barangay officials tried to have a primary school. They used the chapel as their temporary school building for their children. There were only two (2) primary grades opened, Grades I & II and Mr. Buenaventura Talip was the first teacher assigned.
In the year 1978, the P.T.A. Building was built with Two (2) rooms through coordination of the barangay officials and parents. Year 2005, the elected Barangay Officials decided to opened Grade III & Grade IV classes in order to complete the Primary School of Barangay New Dauis with Two (2) teachers assigned. Mrs. Ginalyn A. Vertudazo and Mrs. Annabelle G. Sanchez. There were opened and complete the Primary level of Education from Grade I up to Grade IV, while Grade V & VI are studying at nearby barangays, such as Gabi Elementary School and Antequera Elementary School.
