Our main focus at Wasambo Boys High School is educating the student as a whole and working to help them achieve their full potential through academic exercises rooted in progressive education methods. Students at Wasambo Boys High School should expect to be challenged in every aspect of the schooling process, from the classroom to the football pitch. Our informal curriculum, outside of traditional classroom experience, is designed to allow our students spaces for growth and achievement in leadership and athletics.
