The form one selections are out. Kids who sat their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) have been placed in various secondary schools. Some have received shocking invitations to schools with names that have never been heard for years.

But what are the secondary schools that kids really wanted to join for secondary education? Traditionally, one would expect Starehe Boys Centre, Alliance High School, or Moi High School, Kabarak, to take lead. But no. Things were different this time around.

The top school that kids really wanted to join was Nanyuki High School. A total of 154,524 kids applied to join the school. Sadly, the school only has the capacity to accommodate 384 students.

Kabianga High received 142,160 applications, Pangani Girls had 124,598 interested, Nyandarua High 123,688 interested, Alliance Girls had 105,053 apply, Maseno School had 104,581, and Nakuru High School had 100,840.
