the history of Axum Schools

The Axum High School was founded in November 1962 E.C (1955G.C).  At first the school only had three class rooms and was only used for teaching and learning process.
         *One room for administration. 
         *Two hundred Students. 

Axum Sec. High School started its teaching learning process for the junior high school students (7th gread to 8th greade). The school was limited to 7th and 8th greades only so, after two years most students had to go to Adwa to continue their secondary school. The demand for greade 9th was growning every year therefor, in 1964 the secondary school level  grade 9 was open in Axum.

In 1969 E.C. the school prepared 99 students for matriculation, out of those 99 students 97 of them passed for Degree program and only two for diploma program. 

The students who joined the school in 1962E.C /1955G.C/ should have graduated in 1967 but they graduated in1969 E. C. The problem was EDGET BEHBRET ZEMECHA.
