Kahuhia Girls’ High School Background.
Kahuhia Girls’ High School opened in 1957 with 30 students and a couple of teachers seconded from the Intermediate School (then popularly known as (Mambeere by the entire Kikuyu community. The school started using the learning and administrative facilities of the mabeere including the boarding space. The school was an initiative by the local community and missionaries.
The school performance was encouraging from the start and continued to send a substantial number of its students to “A” level schools, colleges and the university. The school has expanded over the years from a single stream school to a four stream school lately. The ‘A’ level classes performed well in EZZCE and later KACE until they were phased out in 1989 following the introduction of the 8-4-4 system of education.
The school has been a vibrant education institution with moments of great success and incidents of poor educational performance. While its leadership has sustained the motto of the school, TRUTH, the Academic performance has lately been wanting and overall institutional infrastructure in need of rehabilitation. The school has not remained an educational beacon to-date. The current leadership is keen to change this performance status. It is in this context that an Institutional Strategy has been put in place covering four key results areas, which the stakeholders believe will position this school as a centre of educational excellence where many young women will realize their dreams and potential of becoming the best they can be.
