Secondary school came to Kula after years of suffering and petitioning the Rivers State government. The push for a secondary school became very urgent when the then commissioner for education Professor Tam David-West refused to approve a secondary school for Kula. He said at the time that, Kula will get a secondary school over his dead body. So there was a back and forth exchange of words between Professor Tam David-West and Benebo Brown which was circulated in the Nigerian Tide Newspaper. Soon after David-West left ministry of Education, Members of the Kula community began to meet secretly at Ms. Iknow Douglas's house in the middle of the night. It was through these efforts that a secondary school was approved for Kula in the late 70s. The secondary school officially opened in 1979 as Government Secondary School, Kula. The school later closed and reopened in January 1981 as Community Secondary school, Kula. The acronym approved by the principal was COSESOK. The acronym was later changed to CSS, Kula.
