A bit of a History

Our experiences throughout the years gave us so much to offer that our name became the greatest amongst the greatest names

Ecole des Sciences Byimana was established in 1952 by the Marist Brothers and opened its gates as Bukomero Primary School with boys only, then became Ecole des Moniteurs. In 1987, the school started admitting girls. In the 1994 Rwanda genocide, the school lost many of its staff members as well as students. The school has had many names but the best known is Ecole des Sciences Byimana. In 2002, the school celebrated its 50th anniversary with 800 students both boys and girls.In 2008, it had both O'level and two Options namely Bio-Chimie (Biology-Chemistry) and Math-Physique(Maths-Physics), where it changed in 2009 to teach three combinations:MCB, PCM, PCB, with the inclusion of MPC in 2014.In 2017, the school celebrated its 65 years anniversary together with the Marist Bicentenary.
