The attention of the Management of Ranjenny’s High School, Ogale in Eleme Local Government Area of Rivers State has been drawn to a list of derecognized schools by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) over allegations of examination malpractice in the 2021 WASSCE.
The school in a statement by Signed Dr (Mrs) Roselyn Ngelale Founder/Proprietor, expressed shocked and taken aback at the inclusion of Ranjenny’s High School in the list of 35 schools derecognized in Rivers State.
The statement said, for the records, Ranjenny’s High School was founded in 1996 and has remained one of the flagship schools in education excellence, management and administration in Rivers State.
The statement believes that there is a mistake somewhere as the allegation against the school does not sit with the sweat, industry and honour of our graceful founder.
It added that Ranjenny’s High School has never been found wanting in the conduct of any examination and as a matter of fact, it has completely abhor examination malpractice, adding that, “All our students can back up with the fact”.
The statement read: “Even more instructive is the fact that since the inception of the school, we have not registered more than 40 students for WAEC each year, just as we do not register external candidates owing to our strict adherence to international best practices.
“Additionally, supervisors who conduct exams in our school over the years can also attest to the fact that we do not engage in exams misconduct.
“It is on record that for the past six years, Ranjenny’s High School has been registering candidates for JAMB, in addition to conducting CBT on behalf of JAMB without a single blemish.
“Thousands of students who have written JAMB in Ranjenny’s High School will attest to our no nonsense disposition to examination malpractice.
“To this end, we are fully ready to cooperate with WAEC and the Rivers State Ministry of Education to unravel those wanting to portray our school in bad light.
“We wish to assure parents, guardians and students of Ranjenny’s High School to please remain calm as we will do all within our powers to clear the name of our school.”
