Ugyen Academy was established as a high school in 2002 to offer an extra care room for those below average performers. Following its immediate success, it was confident enough to start the lower division which one way to feed the upper division with excellent performers form within the academy. The first badge of CLASS NINE began with only three students in the year 2004, it was hopeful however to begin CLASS TEN in following academy year. There wasn’t any turning back to its ever winning progress since then.
The subsequent years of achievement saw the establishment of classes seven and eight in the year 2009 and 2010 respectively. Today the lower division comprises of classes SEVEN TO TEN.
The current statistics of the lower division are as follows:
i) Class Seven- A section with 25 Students.
ii) Class Eight- Two sections with 30 students each.
iii) Class Nine- Two sections with 30 students each.
iv) Class Ten- Two sections with 37 students each.
Ugyen Academy is commended by Ministry of Education for achieving the top position year after year in the middle secondary level also. It has in 2015 been the only school to be awarded the Testimony of Triple Stars both at the Middle Secondary and Higher Secondary levels for achieving top position for three consecutive years (2012-2014) on the Performance Management System. The school management team is concetrating more on the lower and middle secondary levels because "Better lower secondary means better higher secondary".
Class Seven to Nine have special study tours to aid their classroom learning experiances besides the regular literary programs for the lower division. The teaching learning experiances are all set to emphasize 21st century educational concepts such as "Learning to Learn" and "Thinking to Think".The relentless and inspering efforts of the students, teachers, and the school management will ensure enviable success. Together, we are sure to scale greater heights in education.
