Our History
Khumjung School (also known as Hillary School) is located in the heart of the Sagarmatha National Park in the Khumbu region, Solukhumbu district, Nepal. Founded by famous mountaineer Sir Edmund Hillary in 1961, the school has gradually expanded from its small but celebrated beginnings as it endeavours to keep up with the demand for education from the local people. Now, with an enrolment of over 300 pupils, the school teaches preschoolers and Grades 1 to 10. Khumjung School is the only high school in the Khumbu region and it is fed by six primary schools in the periphery villages. The school is situated in a picturesque Sherpa village at a height of 3790 m (13,000 ft), from where innumerable impressive mountains, including Mt Everest, can be seen.
