Most Expensive in Africa

Kenya’s elite schools are the most expensive in Africa according to a 2018 report.

The cost of educating a child below 10 years in Nairobi’s top private schools is $10,500 (Sh1million) a year on average, the International Schools Database Survey states (ISDS).

“The survey suggests that the high price is in part due to high-quality education and costs,” Andrea Robledillo of the ISDS said.

Kenya has a chain of international schools which offer international curriculum like the British education system and charge up to $25,988 (sh2.7million) per year, rivalling more advanced metropolis like Amsterdam, Kuala Lumpur, Copen Hagen and Cape town whose fees are nearly a third of what Kenyan schools charge.

Top on the list of Nairobi’s exclusive schools is the International School of Kenya (ISK) which charges parents a whopping $25,988 per child.
