The School started precisely on the 28 November 1994 in a mud building of 10 rooms, which has given way to a gigantic two storey building accommodating almost all the streams. There are other buildings like the Library block, as well as a well-equipped Laboratories for each of the science subjects, an ICT/Computer lab, a workshop for technology studies and a large room for indoor games.
It is common knowledge that the first teachers of this school started with a long table and 6 seats as office furniture, but now the school has modern air conditioned staff rooms, well furnished in a two storey edifice. The management also supplied various sports equipment to promote sports in the school and a borehole with accompanying well located overhead tanks to give the school constant water supply.
