St Michael’s Secondary Day School
In 2019 the Kenya Bureau of Statistics claim that only 45 % of pupils who complete primary school will complete their secondary education. Established in 2007 due to the prohibitive costs of attending a secondary school, St Michael’s was developed for boys and girls from the Mukuru slums providing affordable quality, secondary-level education from Form One through to Form Four.
St Michael’s boasts a well equipped learning institution owing to the newly completed permanent structures built in collaboration with KfW Development Cooperation, National Government of Kenya and the Sisters of Mercy. The school facilities include two science laboratories, computer laboratory, modern and well resourced library, airy classrooms, playing fields and basketball courts. These facilities place St Michael’s in the top 20% category of excellent, educational centres. St Michael’s is now a three stream secondary school with an enrolment of over 400 students and 20 teachers.
