Our school follows the KNEC (Kenya National Examination Council) and KICD (Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development) approved syllabus under the 8.4.4 system of education. The teachers are key players in facilitating the learning of mathematics. We recognize that mathematics opens career paths and development, since it is a key subject to most careers. We prepare students to be effective in calculation skills, so as to fit in the larger world, which is now a global village.
We focus on being role models to our students and supporting them to ensure that we produce great results every year. Our students participate in various mathematics competitions, like maths contests organised by different schools, Kenya maths Olympiad organised by Nairobi University. This is in recognition that various students learn in different ways, thus we expose them to various learning activities like, drawing graphs daily, construction skills, calculation skills, use of the mathematics tables. Students have group discussions, have a note book where they write down all formulas learnt.
The department makes sure that there is timely coverage of the syllabus within the stipulated timelines. This helps to make sure that all that the learners are supposed to be taught is covered. After syllabus coverage, teachers embark on revision.
Upon the release of the K.C.S.E results, the departmental members meet and do an analysis of the students’ performance. A comparison is made regarding the general performance nationally. This gives direction on whether the set targets were achieved and gives the direction on the setting of the following year’s targets. The K.C.S.E results also give a feedback on what areas need to be improved on as well as the working techniques that can be put in place to achieve the set goals.
The department has produced the highest number of straight grade As in the K.C.S.E for the last 3 years.
