Christ King Hr. Sec. School was founded in 1969. The school remained a primary school (initially up to class IV) till 1986, and students were automatically absorbed by Don Bosco School, Kohima, which was also started by Fr. Ittyachen SDB in 1971, and it was from class V onwards, and Christ King school was a feeder school for Don Bosco School. At that time, the Principal of Don Bosco School stayed at Christ King parish and went up and down every day. This arrangement continued till 1984, when Don Bosco School started admitting students to Nursery classes and there was no automatic admission there and Christ King school too upgraded yearly. The first batch wrote the HSLC examinations in 1992. The school is officially recognized by the Nagaland Board of School Education. It was upgraded into Higher Secondary in 2005. Christ King Hr. Sec. School too is a Don Bosco institution.
Kohima is one of the oldest districts amongst the eleven districts in the entire state and Kohima has the first seat of the administration of the Naga hills, under the appointment of G.H. Damant as the political officer during that time. Nagaland was declared as a full fledged state on 1st December, 1963 and during that time itself Kohima was declared the capital of the state. The original name of Kohima was “Kewhira” which was actually the name of the place where Kohima town is actually located. However, the British could not pronounce the word and hence changed the name to Kohima. Kohima is also known as ‘Bara Bosti’ which is the second largest village in entire Asia. Kohima can be accessed via road, train and even air. The nearest airport from Kohima is Dimapur Airport and the nearest railway station is also Dimapur railway station which is 73 km.
