The school was begun in 1939 when the A.I.M missionaries concerned with literacy began a form of teacher training. In 1950 Kijabe became a college for teachers before it was transformed into primary school for boys. In 1962 it was converted into a boarding high school for boys. In 1957 a boarding primary school for girls was started and later changed into a boarding girls high school. In 1964 the girls and boys were amalgamated into one, which grwe into a three-streamed school from form one to form six offering science, arts and technical subjects. In 1987 the school was split into a boy’s high school and a girls high school. Today, Kijabe boy’s high school is a four-streamed provincial school. The school offers a broad based curriculum that caters for the diverse needs of individual students. We offer core subjects: English, Kiswahili and Mathematics.
