Chogoria Girls High School History
The school was started in 1922 by a missionary from the Presbyterian Church of Scotland, Dr Clive Irvine, who also founded the church and the hospital. It started as a preparatory grade mixed school. In 1952 it achieved the title of Primary School and Junior School.
In 1953, the Junior School was terminated and Intermediate School was introduced. The school continued with its co-education that had its classrooms at Chogoria Boys Secondary and dormitories at Chogoria Girls Secondary School. All this time its catchment area was the whole of the old Meru and Embu Districts.
In 1965, the idea of a secondary school came into the minds of the local people and the intermediate section was slowly phased out. In the same year, the girls joined the boys to carry on with co-education.
In 1968 the school headmaster decided to separate boys from girls and this gave birth to Chogoria Girls Secondary School with its first headteacher Mrs. Charity Mugo.
In 1969, the girls moved to the present 20-acre site. The physical facilities were quite inadequate but through the efforts of the local community, the P.C.E.A church and assistance from the government and parents the school grew. It continued as a single stream (160 students) up to 1979 when the second stream was born. In 1980 the Advanced level (‘A’ level), Arts stream was started.
From 1980 the school continued with two streams in ordinary level ‘O’ and one stream ‘A’ level Arts. The ‘A’ level stream was phased out in 1989, when the education system in Kenya was changed to 8-4-4 system. The third stream in` O’ level was then started in 1990.
In 1996 the fourth stream was started and soon after (2001) the fifth stream was born.
