The top 10 national schools have received a lot of interest because of their recent good performance in KCSE. The schools have consistently featured among top in the past few years, pushing more students to universities with higher mean scores.

Students who seek to join these schools believe, given their performance record, they get a head start and confidence of scoring top marks in KCSE four years later, opening an assured way to universities in Kenya or abroad.

Top marks in KCSE also attract scholarships from both government and private sector. Given that this will be the last form 4 class under the scrapped 8-4-4 education system, parents are not leaving anything to chance for a historical close.

Mr Machogu also clarified that the placements for 2024 form one entry were done according to the students’ choices and other criteria.

“Some students were placed in schools of equivalent standing outside their counties. This includes those from counties with inadequate capacity,” CS Machogu commented.

Top 10 Schools

  1. Kabianga High school.
  2. Nanyuki High School.
  3. Pangani Girls High School.
  4. Kapsabet Boys High School.
  5. Alliance Girls.
  6. Maseno School.
  7. Nakuru High School.
  8. Butere Girls High School.
  9. Mangu Boys High School.
  10. Alliance High School.

The ministry further placed candidates who secured more than 400 marks in national and extra-county schools of choice. In his speech, Machogu urged parents and guardians of the 2023 candidates to avoid middlemen and download placement letters directly.

He further warned principals against hiking school fees without the approval of his Ministry.

With this, he clarified that the County Education Board is also not authorised to approve school fees and impose levies beyond the amount stipulated by the national government.

“The Constitution obligates the government to provide free and compulsory education, saying additional levies deny children of poor parents access to education,” Machogu stated.

Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang, who accompanied the CS, further urged the National Treasury to expedite first-term capitation payments for schools ahead of schools reopening in January 2024.
