Hope and Resurrection Secondary School (HRSS) provides a very high quality education to South Sudanese youth in Atiaba, South Sudan. Our school is one of the few secondary schools in the nation known to have a faculty that is 100 percent university educated. These teachers are dedicated and committed to helping students become the country's next generation of leaders. In addition to the curriculum and textbooks recommended by South Sudan's Ministry of Education, teachers expand the curriculum to cover the South Sudan National Secondary Examination syllabus. Underscored by the exceptional school leaving examination results, our graduates are among the most educated people in their country.
But that’s not all; in addition to academically preparing our students for success, our teachers are also preparing students to become leaders and advocates for peace and reconciliation in South Sudan. Students are provided a safe space to share their grief and concerns about conflict. They voice their experiences through a variety of writing forms such as poetry and speeches. They are taught the art of debate as a peaceful means to discuss and then collaborate on resolutions. These reconciliation experiences inspire students to become advocates and trainers promoting peace in their community and country.
