National Secondary Schools in Kenya

National Secondary Schools in Kenya per County

The Ministry of Education in Kenya upgraded some secondary schools in various counties to the prestigious national schools status. National schools have the capacity and infrastructure to handle big numbers of students and can take students from every part of Kenya.

Initially, there were only 17 National schools in Kenya, but the clamour by parents to have their children educated in National schools led the government to expand the list to the now over 100 schools.

The original old 17 national schools were categorized as cluster 3 schools with the rest of the national schools finding their places in cluster 1, cluster 2 and cluster 4.

Clustering of National schools is based on the age of the school, capacity, and resources available in each school.
