KENYA CERTIFICATE OF SECONDARY EDUCATION (KCSE)

Juja Senior School offers The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education popularly known as the 8-4-4 Curriculum. This is a 4-year course that is developed by The Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development-KICD and taught in public schools in Kenya. In addition, we offer International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) curriculum. The Dean of Studies monitors and ensures effective implementation of the curriculum.

The office works with the examinations office in administering, analyzing and interpreting examination results and preparing academic progress reports of students. These reports can be accessed online or through a written report form signed by the class teacher and the school principal.

The Dean of Studies office also works with the guidance and counseling department on students’ subject selections, career choices, university/college applications. In addition, the office organizes career days by inviting role models in the society who inspire our students. The students are exposed to university fairs, trade fairs, career workshops, debates, contests, symposiums among other educational events both within and outside school premises. Parents are also invited for yearly consultation on students’ academic progress.

The school is privileged to have a pool of highly qualified and experienced teachers who are examiners with Kenya National Examinations Council. External examiners and speakers are normally invited to motivate, reinforce and complement the subject tutors.
