Kellamino Special High School (KSHS) is a full scholarship boarding secondary school for talented students competitively selected from all primary schools of Tigray National Regional State. The school was established in 1998 by Tigrai Development Association (TDA), a membership based non-profit organization with a vision of making Tigrai prosperous and free from poverty and backwardness. Over the past quarter of the century, TDA has been mainly engaged in the expansion of primary and secondary schools as well as health institutions. As part of its effort to improve quality of education, TDA established and runs a full boarding special high school for high achieving students.
