1 .Background history of the school
What is now Cheborge High school has a history which stretches back to the early parts of Independence days. The school was formerly an Intermediate primary school until 1967 when it was converted into an harambee mixed day secondary school. It was officially opened in 1968 by Mr. Njoroge Gitau, the then Deputy Chief education officer.
The school grew gradually to attain a 3- stream status in the provincial category.
It was divided into 2 schools Boys and Girls sections in 1994 and it is from then to date that they are registered separately as K.C.S.E Centres.
The boys section is 2 streamed with its classrooms and dinning hall while the girls school is 1 - streamed with their own classes and dinning Hall also.
The two schools in one share the following facilities:
- Playing field
- Computer and science laboratories

Governors and PTA.
Ifs the wish of the parents and the school management that the school is finally
made a pure boys school for improved academic performance.
The school is a three streamed institution from form one to four, and total of 12 classes.
With the Ministry’s stipulated enrolment of 45 students per class, the total student population should be 540.
However the present population is slightiy less at 520 due to the following reasons:
