Historical background:
The barangay of Apokon was created in the year 1951 by virtue of a municipal ordinance by the newly names Tagum municipality under a newly elected mayor, Eliseo V. WAkakn who assumed leadership in lieu of the outgoing defeated Mayor Manuel Baura Suaybaguio, Sr.. This muddy and grassy place place called “LAPOKON” is around two kilometers away from the mother barangay Magugpo which at present known as the City of Tagum and the capital town of Davao del Norte.  The residents were mostly Mansakas, Kalagans, Samals and other tribes of Davao itself.  These people live primitive lifestyles; they engaged farming and planting Tikog, Romblon, Baliw and Abaca stalks for mat weaving.  Their main staple depends on the Palay, Corn and other vegetable products.  Attracted with its agricultural potentials, people from the Visayas and Luzon starts coming in and starts settling the place. These caused the natives to move as they parted their heritage to the migrants with some jewelry and other exchanges offered.

Some of the pioneering families were the Dodongans, Marquezes, Budiongans, Benanings, and the Edquillas who are the land owners of the surrounding lots.  With their courageous intention and desire for education, the Marquezes offered their lot as school site.  BY that time the school was built under the leadership of the Barangay Captain Felix Dodongan with the cooperation of the Barangay people, they agreed to name it as Apokon Primary School.  Years later the population became bigger and later changed to Apokon Elementary School.  The term Lapokon means muddy could no longer be seen in this much imploring place.  Various Schools, colleges and other government institutions, subdivisions, and housing facilities are now in place and still developing.
