Barangay Ranao-ranao was once a Sitio of Barangay Cavasi in 1920. According to local historians, Agripino Abo, Sr. former Tinyente del Barrio called for a pulong and requested the separation of Sitio Ranao-Ranao from Cavasi because of its growing population.

According to an existing profile of the City, the community was established in 1940. The name “Ranao-Ranao” came from the word “ranaw” meaning a small lake found in the community. The barangay fiesta started when an image of the Immaculate Concepcion was donated to the barangay.

In 1986, Cavasi National High Scholl was established in Ranao-Ranao. Attorney Salvador Princesa who donated the land made a condition that the school be named after his late wife “Christina Princesa”. The elementary school was established thru the efforts of Gregorio Peninoy Sr., then Barangay Captain.

A fiesta is celebrated every 8th day of December in honor of their patron saint, Immaculate Concepcion.
