It is in these schools that you will find the children of the who’s who in Kenya’s political, diplomatic, business and corporate landscape. Education might be free for all at public primary and high schools in the country, but if you want quality, you must be ready to pay for it. And pay big you will at these international schools. 8-4-4 is not in the mix and the only systems available are the GCSE and IB.
