Junior Secondary School

Primary school is a very essential part of a child’s education journey. Most parents would love to take their kids to a school that not only teaches their children how to read and write but also brings them up morally correct and instills in them good values at an early age.

Typically, private primary schools charge a relatively higher amount as school fees compared to their public counterparts. But these institutions offer higher standards of learning to students and unsurprisingly form a more significant chunk of the top primary schools in Kenya in terms of learning standards and academic performance
