The kenyan school system
- Nursery School (3 years):
- Primary School (8 years) :comparable with lower and middle school (standard 1 - standard 8)
- Secondary School (4 years): comparable with high school. Is offered only as boarding school. (form 1 – form 4)
Free means not really for free
Although the basic schools don't charge any school fees any more since 2002,there are several costs, that make school prohibitive for a lot of people. There are still fees for school uniforms, books, paper, pencils, lunch and often also for the service personel of the school. This total to about a 150 $ per year that need to be paid by the parents. One year of Secondary School costs about 450 $ included boarding which means the annual salary in this region of the country.
