K/Dimbani school

K/Dimbani school has a primary and first secondary school which opened on 9th February 1998 starting with 168 pupils.

It now has 500 pupils aged from 4-16 with 20 teachers & 12 classes. The headteacher is Ussi Othman Ussi. Subjects taught are Religion, History, Geography, Maths, Physics, Arabic, Kiswahili, English and Social Studies.
