Academics

Juja Preparatory School offers the Kenyan national system of education: 8-8-4 curriculum and the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC). Since 1997, we have nurtured the development of our children preparing them to pursue their aspirations.
Through our committed team of teachers, we use up-to-date resources from the Kenya Institute of Education to teach our pupils the curriculum while addressing the learning needs of individual pupils. At the beginning of every term, assessment methods are outlined through schemes of work and course outlines. Every term, 3 major assessments are administered, with exams sourced from within or outside the school. Pupil’s performance is recorded in a report book and parents are encouraged to regularly discuss these outcomes at class meetings or consultation forums.
To provide a robust learning experience, we have incorporated relevant and emerging social issues into our curriculum, examples of these include: environmental conservation, health concerns such as drug abuse, gender issues, human rights, child rights, and social responsibility. Similarly, our Life Skills syllabus has incorporated a thematic approach to teaching various social and moral skills. These themes are derived from situations that pupils are likely to experience every day.
At Juja Preparatory School, we inspire and stimulate our pupils to excel in academics, develop their individual talents, and nurture their spirituality creating well-rounded pupils.

Languages

French
We encourage our pupils to learn this foreign language to expand their linguistic skills and boost international consciousness among our pupils. All learners acquire communication skills in the language through activities such as poetry, intensive and extensive reading, role play and skits, as well as short clips and appropriate movies.
Kiswahili
Yakini, mgomba ni kupapaliwa. Nasi wanajuja twazidi kuhakikisha kuwa lugha hii tukuka inaendelea kukua na kuimarika kila kuchao. Tumejitolea mhanga kuhakikisha wanagenzi wameitupilia mbali mitazamo hasi na wanakienzi Kiswahili kwa dhati ja mboni za macho.
Kipindi hakitakuwa kipindi cha Kiswahili iwapo wanafunzi hawajaigiza, kufumbua mafumbo, kutegua vitendawili, kughani mashairi na hata kukamilisha methali mradi kusisitiza mada husika. Japo mbu wapo, kwani masika yameng’oa nanga hatutatetereka kamwe. Kwetu sisi, kila kurudi nyuma ndiko kwenda mbele.
Misingi yetu ni ushirikiano unaopiku wa kiko nadigalina ukakamavu wa sondomti agotaye gogo. Ari ikiwa ngao yetu, bila shaka hatuna budi kukifika kilele.
Waama, penye nia njia I papo.
