About us

The school was founded by a seasoned educationist, Hajiya Hadiza Mamayaya Abdul (M.Ed Early Childhood Education).

The school began operations on the 17th of January, 1989 as a nursery and primary school known as Fahinta Annex. It changed its name to Himma in March 1989. The establishment was to meet the demand of parents for qualitative education. The school moved to its present permanent site with its new motto: Ever to Excel on the 1st of January, 1993. The junior secondary arm of the college came into being in 1996 and it became a full-fledged secondary school with the commencement of the senior secondary school in 2001.
