The Port Reitz School was founded in June 1965, under the headship of Mrs. Margaret Beetham.
The Port Reitz School is a Christian school for handicapped children sponsored by the Methodist church in Kenya. However children of all religions are accepted.
The Port Reitz School is a special school for physically, mentally and socially handicapped children and still the only primary school of its kind in the coast province of the republic of Kenya that offers services to the needy children who through no fault of theirs happen to be handicapped.
The school is situated along the old Port Reitz road leading to the Port Reitz District Hospital and opposite the school of Clinical Medicines.
