KAMEJI MIXED SECODARY SCHOOL BRIEF HISTORY
Kameji mixed secondary school was started in 1998 as a community school by the stakeholders of Kameji sub-location. The school was registered in the year 2000, it started off with two incomplete classrooms, 9 pupils and 3 teachers.
The concept to start the school was necessitated by the fact that there was no secondary school in that sub location transverse by river Riana and roads in fairly poor state thus the pupils were forced to walk many kilometers to the nearest secondary school 6km away. Equally the river made other neighboring schools not easily accessible.
The members of the community made frequent fund raising and eventually put up more classrooms and a temporary office. In the year 2003 the first pupils admitted sat their K.C.S.E exams and registered a mean score of D+ with the top pupils scoring C 44points.
Since then the school has made leaps, bounds in improvement. Currently the school has 833 pupils (boys and girls.) and is a registered 3 streamed district school which is mixed day and boarding. The school has also improved infrastructure and boasts 5 staff houses, 3 big hostels, modern dining hall/kitchen, 1 laboratory, 1 library, 11 classrooms, mains electricity, and 1 computer room among other infrastructures.
