“Education means inspiring someone’s mind, not just filling their head” — Katie Lusk; Thus, we believe in ensuring our students are well and all rounded hence we prepare them to be ready to face the next chapters of their lives. Our curriculum is based on the Kenyan 8-4-4 national system and we are recognized by the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology as a K.C.P.E certified institution. Our teaching staff is well trained to take the students through the proper K.C.P.E required curriculum and continuous assessment for the upper classes are carried out so as to prepare them for the K.C.P.E examination.
We also emphasize on the importance of physical education thus each class must partake in physical education classes and the students are also allocated time during the week to engage in sporting activities as part of our aim to mold our students into balanced individuals. In addition, encouraging them to engage in sports allows them to discover and nurture their talents as well as learn the aspects of teamwork, achievement and healthy competition.
School bus transport is available to and from within the radius of Kenyatta Road and Juja. Hot and nutritious meals are prepared daily by the school catering staff.
