All the school’s students who sat for the examination scored aggregatesbetween 10 and 26 except one who produced aggregate 34 which is below government set mark.

Mr. Jallow said the school’s proprietor- Essa Bangali’s - goal is to give back to the community by providing quality education.

Mr. Bah said hehas been tirelessly working with teachers to make sure they produce aggregate 6 but noted that because it was their first attempt is was challenging.

According to him, the secret behind their success is the result of determination and perseverance, sayingthe teachers have been absolutely committed.
