Welcome From The Head Teacher
I hope these pages will capture your imagination and give you some insights into this remarkable school. Since 2011, KIGALI GREATER HEIGHTS SCHOOL has touched the lives of young people from all corners of the country and from all walks of life who have come to this place to live and learn together.
A KIGALI GREATER HEIGHTS SCHOOL education combines the very best features of high academic challenge with a unique approach to the enrichment and personal development of young people. We prepare young people for exams and we equip them to earn a living — we do these things with rigour, nurturing the potential and achievement of each individual. Yet the education KIGALI GREATER HEIGHTS SCHOOL offers is designed to go far beyond these goals, to develop the whole person and not just a part, to help each individual to become, in the words of our mission statement, ‘visionary, articulate and ethical — equipped to achieve their full potential in life’.
KIGALI GREATER HEIGHTS SCHOOL is not an easy option; the challenges are real and the expectations high. From our stunning K.G.H.S location, we are uniquely placed to span many of the divides that still dominate the 21st century, divides between east and west, rich and poor, creed, culture and race — an inspiring mix of opportunity and challenge. But this is also an immensely rewarding and fulfilling option. For young people excited by the possibility of change and motivated to act through personal example and courageous leadership, there are real opportunities to make a difference.
Visitors to our school discover the friendly and dynamic atmosphere that makes this such a fascinating place. There is an air of happy purposefulness here, a determination to succeed, to enjoy life, to enjoy each other’s company and, most importantly, to discover that there is far more in each of us than we think!
