Lhuentse Higher Secondary School

Brief History

Lhuentse Higher Secondary School is located below Thoshupang under Gangzur Gewog. It has 31.189 acres of land.  The school is a few hundred metres above the district hospital, about ten minutes walk from Lhuentse Town and fifteen minutes from the Dzongkhag headquarter. It is a boarding school with a capacity to accommodate 128 boys and 96 girls. It provides education to students from classes VII to XII.

Lhuentse Higher Secondary School was constructed under the World Bank funding and established in 2004 as Phuyum Middle Secondary School with nine teachers and 282 students from classes 7 to 9. The school was upgraded to its present status in 2006. However, Phuyum, which means a place where forefathers are extinct, did not befit the name for a seat of learning. The proposal put up by the school for change of school name from Phuyum to Lhuentse was endorsed by the 29th Tshogdu of Lhuentse Dzongkhag and accordingly approved by the Education Ministry vide letter MoE/DSE/SLCD/Misc/2011/3422 dated April 14, 2011.
