History The school was founded in 1959 to improve education among the Basoga boys. The only school in Busoga region that was for Boys was Busoga College Mwiri. Butiki falls in the category of Public schools in Uganda. Public schools are mainly Government aided institutions through the Ministry of Education. Until recently, (in mid 1990’s), Public schools were considered to be more powerful in academic terms compared to private schools. However, there’s still a historical academic pride that exists among many graduates of the historical (established before the late 1960s) public schools and entry into these public schools is still a competitive enterprise for students.
