The Haile Selassie I High School was opened on September 9, 1969 as a gift from H.I.M. Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia, subsequent to his visit to Jamaica in 1966. Many wondered why Our Majesty would build a school in the ghetto. Yet, since inception, the school has graduate several of Jamaica’s finest graduates—with which we are pleased. We also recognize that today, there are opportunities to assist students as well as the surrounding community.
RTV JAMAICA LAUNCH AT HAILE SELASSIE SCHOOL
(SEPT. 11, 2014)
To ensure ongoing support and sustainability, we have called upon the help of family, friends and alumni to provide scholarships; to repair, green and beautify the school to positively impact the surrounding Payne Ave community. In addition to aforementioned Health Fair, we would like to explore: a farm to table organic garden project that creates healthy meals for the students; the development of a multimedia and music center in the future where we can wisely use technology and music to help heal and bridge the gap between cultures at home. This hub would be a safe place where our eco-preneurship can meet, be mentored and work on Digital Projects together. We are prepared to organize and implement these items with your permissions at no costs to the school, students and community.
We look forward to a successful mission and welcome any questions you may have.

Haile Selassie’s School motto, “Learning for a Living”, was inspired by the words of the emperor himself, who said:
“Education is the gateway to everlasting enlightenment. There is no end to training and you should think of the completion of your education here only as a commencement of the second chance of your assignment in life. Open a new door to struggle for that degree of excellence in the service of your country and humanity.”
