Established in 2021 B.S., currently, 240 students are studying at Shree Simpaleswari Secondary School. The school is about 75KM away from Kathmandu. The school is nearby the famous Kathmandu - Melamchi drinking water. About 98% of the population residing in the community belongs to Tamang families. Only a few belong to other indigenous groups. Most people in the community either rely on agriculture or foreign employment for their livelihood.
As the area is underdeveloped, most of the female members of the house leave their homes to work in a foreign land as housekeepers. People walk for hours to reach the market to get their everyday needs. A single bus trip once a day from Simpalkavre to Kathmandu is available but the accessibility is limited. Sindhupalchok, one of the highly affected areas during the 2015 earthquake still has left some scars from the devastation when it comes to basic infrastructure development.
However, Shree Simpaleshwori Secondary School is teamed up with young and dynamic teachers from different districts who are enthusiastic to do something worthy for the students and the community. All teachers are highly experienced which makes a positive impact on the study of students. Although the community is located a bit far from the city vibes, students continue to win titles and awards during inter-school competitions and regional sports, and other extracurricular activities.
Initially, the school's condition was structurally poor before. Lack of toilets, lab, the playground were some of the major issues faced by students and teachers. However, some of the problems have not been sorted out. With the help of foreign aid, the school has managed to construct few new buildings. The school currently has a lab, library, and basic necessities for both students and teachers but it still lacks materials inside the labs and classrooms.
