HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL
Kiungururia Mixed Secondary school is in Rift Valley province, Nakuru County, Gilgil District, Eburru/Mbaruk Ward. It started in 2013. Parents found the need for a secondary school after the experience of many standard eight drop-outs whose parents were either unable to take them to far schools due to lack of finances or acquired low marks to enable them be admitted in provincial or national schools. In addition, parents found the potential of the Kiungururia Primary School land with its capacity for an additional secondary school, and also the huge population of the latter.
The school was started in February 2013 by the local community in conjunction with the primary school head. 4 ½ acres land was allocated for the Secondary school.
The school was registered as an academic institution by the ministry of education on 24/10/2014 whereby it was headed by the Kiungururia primary school head. On 09/01/2014 a principal was posted to the school. By then the school had a student population of 9 students.
To date the school’s population is 197 students, 5 TSC teachers, 2 support staff and 6 B.O.M employed teachers.
The Government subsidy provision policy that had called for the right of students to Education has also affected the school running. The government requires that as many Kenyans as possible access education. This has caused congestion in Kiungururia Mixed Secondary School since even those who were unable to join Secondary school are now coming and are admitted mainly due to the Government subsidy.
