About Our School
Kiriti Girls was founded as a Harambee School back in 1973 following a fundraiser by parents of Muthangari, Kiamuturi, Mioro, and Wambwe and lies on a 12-acre piece of land. This was after the relocation of the Gacharage-íní primary school in 1968 to provide space for the development of the secondary school. At inception, the school was known as Muthangari Secondary School. At the time of its commencement, the school was a mixed day school, meaning it was admitting both boys and girls and did not have boarding facilities. In 1977, the school was moved to the current location and renamed Kiriti Mixed Secondary School. Today, the school is a government owned school through MoE and by extension DEB and is a strictly boarding girls’ school.
The founders of the school at the time envisioned to increase the number of young people from the locality who had secondary education. Since during this time Kenya was still struggling to have enough budget for education and absorb all the primary school leavers to secondary schools, the locals took it an own initiative to ensure this goal is achieved. The founding members of the school were parents from Muthangari, Kiamuturi, Mioro, and Wambwe.
In 1973, the school had an enrollment of 78 students comprising of both girls and boys. Over the years with the improvement of the school facilities the changing economic and social aspects in the country, have seen the school take students from areas far away from the locality. Besides, the population has also increased tremendously to around 358 students presently.
On academics, the school could be ranked among the lower middle performance based on the results posted over the last ten years. At present, the school runs two streams, and has a total of 20 teachers. On the co-curricular activities front, the school has had several sporting activities such as football, handball, volley ball, table tennis, badminton, and athletics (cross-country and other races, skip and long jump, etc.). Besides, the school also participates in activities such as drama and music festivals. The co-curricular activities have been considered as not only important for relaxation of the students, but also a way of developing student’s talents and keeping them fit.
The performance of the School is improving every year 2016 2017 and 2018 where the improvement index last year was 0.514. The position in the sub-county is rising from position 13,10 and 8 out of 31 since 2016 to 2018 respectively.
