List of International Schools | Contacts | Location in Kenya 2021



Apart from Normal Schools that offer the 8-4-4 education system in the country, Kenya has a reasonable number of well-established international schools that serve students from different parts of the world dwelling in the country as well as local residents.

These schools are mostly located in major towns and cities such as Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu, Thika, and Nakuru. The majority of these schools teach in English but also offer international curriculums such as the International Baccalaureate (IB), International GCSE (IGCSE), and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). Offering these international curriculums is what distinguishes these schools from the other ones.

The Necessity of International Schools


Most of the foreigners living in Kenya with their families do not prefer taking their children through the rather ambiguous and lengthy Kenyan (8-4-4) Education System. This necessitates the presence of international schools that offer a shorter and precise curriculum. Children studying in these schools are able to transfer from one school to another easily in case of any circumstance. They can also take exams in any of the schools since all exams taken in these schools are the same regardless of location.

Who can enroll in an International School?


Although the schools are not restricted to foreign children only, native Kenyan children are rarely enrolled in these schools. This fact is attributed to the hefty amount of fees required to study in such an institution among other reasons. However, the elites normally enroll their children in these schools, typically speeding up their schooling process and subsequent absorption into the job market.

How long does it take to study in an International School?


Under normal circumstances, a child studying in an international school should complete secondary education at 16 years. On the other hand, a child in the Kenyan education system completes secondary education at 18, 19, or even 20 in some cases. This indicates that graduates from international schools have an upper hand when it comes to career advancement as self-establishment.
