Welcome to our school! We’re now in our fifteenth year and we’re stronger than ever... and prouder than ever.
My name is Raina Luff and I’ve been the Director of the school since its founding in 2006. Then we had just twelve students, two teachers and just one classroom. Today we have over 450 students, nineteen teachers and a beautiful two-hectare campus with a sports ground, a music and events hall, a library, a computer lab and fifteen classrooms. But we’re not stopping here...
We need to extend the buildings of primary and we intend to purchase the plot behind the school. The new building is going to host six classrooms that will accommodate one hundred and fifty new elementary students and we are currently raising money for the construction of a secondary school with full overnight boarding facilities.The plot for building secondary school is already purchased.
When local parents and I founded the school, we all agreed we wanted to build a school unlike any other school in Muhanga — a place where children would learn to think for themselves, a place where creativity and self-expression would thrive, a place of ethnic, religious and social diversity, a place to incubate the future leaders of Rwanda. And I’m proud to say that’s exactly what we have built:
We conduct ALL our classes in English, French and Kinyarwanda
We offer programs in mathematics, science, computer technology, art, language, physical education, performance, drama and Kindergarten
We limit the number of children per class to 25 (compared with between 45 and 60 in other schools)
We are self-financing
At least 25% of our students — orphans or those from poor families — receive their schooling free of charge
So whether you are a prospective student, a parent or a teacher, feel free to get to know us a little and see what makes us not just the best school in Muhanga, but one of the top elementary schools in East Africa and a model of education in the ‘new’ Rwanda...
