Nyangere Secondary was founded out of the need to bring education closer to the people for there was no any secondary school near by. The nearest being out of the radius of 9kms.
So in 2003 local leaders established the school as a community project. The school started from Nyangere primary which sub-divided her land to the secondary school, Nyangere Mixed Secondary is under Pefa as the sponsor church.
The school first registered for KCSE in 2005 since then it has scored a steady improvement in the National Examination Results standing at the mean of 4.7 in 2008.
Among the founder members are Chief Ariri, Cllrs Sanuko, Nguka Owuor, Mr. Paul Nyittambe, Mzee Obinju, Mr. Bernard Ochieng Kasam, Erick Miluo among others
