The headmistress is supported by a staff of 19 teachers. The school has a governing body chaired by a Chairman, Mr Ali Faranga, and Chairlady, Mrs Asha Wakoi

One of the early school buildings

The school has built a good reputation, frequently doing well at Kenyan National Music and Dance competitions in Nairobi, and is officially recognized as the most improved school in the locality since 2002. The school is assessed by the government and the teachers undertake various in-post development courses.

Recently renovated classrooms

The school receives some funding from those parents who can afford to pay. However many cannot afford the school fees due to high unemployment and the high incidence of AIDS which has decimated a whole generation leaving many children orphaned.
The Shonda Project supports these children through the sponsorship programme.
