Kenya has the largest economy in Eastern and Central Africa, and is commonly ranked as one of the fastest growing economies on the continent. This has seen a swift change in educational trends, particularly in Nairobi. The best International Schools in Kenya
Unfortunately, many public schools in Kenya suffer from a lack of funding and a shortage of highly qualified teaching staff. Thus, both expats and wealthy Kenyans frequently opt for private schooling or international schools. To be fair, one should add that most Kenyan families value their kids’ education very highly. They often make big sacrifices to send their children to a good school. Kenya has some extremely competitive government schools, where the local students with the best academic results go after primary education. However, for expat kids who move a lot or will return to their home country soon, it’s probably easier to attend a school with an academic system that’s more widely recognized abroad than the Kenyan one. If you spend a lot of time traveling outside Nairobi, you might want to check out the boarding options that quite a few schools in Kenya provide. The traffic jam in Nairobi also means that children may spend more time getting to school which makes boarding an option. For parents who work in countries in crisis, again there are safe boarding schools in Kenya especially in Nakuru.
Advantages to study in Kenya?
In addition, a few other advantages of studying in Kenya include:
Kenya’s international schools are some of the best in East Africa.
Kenya is big on sport in comparison to many countries in the region especially athletics, football, swimming and some international schools offer horse riding.
A good number of schools in Kenya have spacious grounds which is a good learning environment.
For Christians, Kenya is largely a Christian country so moral uprightness is very important
Kenya is famous for its flora and fauna which gives students a wide range of study tour opportunities.
Given Kenya’s rich history the international schools in Kenya have educational programmes and extra-curricular activities based on this heritage which include not just art but also music, dance and drama.
Kenyans are very proud of their language and love to see visitors or foreigners speak it and as such there are many opportunities to learn Kiswahili.
Due to Nairobi’s cosmopolitan nature, there is a great chance to meet people of different nationalities and enjoy different cuisines.
