The International School Of Kenya (ISK), located in the outskirts of Nairobi, approximately 8miles from the city center, is ranked the most expensive school in Kenya, and this is why.

This totals to Ksh 3M– 5M per year. Clearly this school is not for the common mwananchi.

The ISK was started in the year 1976 through a collaboration between the US and Canadian governments

The school sits on a 50 acre piece of a former coffee plantation.

The ISK is a private day school that offers an educational program from prekindergarten to Grade 12. It also offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma program.

It has a population of close to 1000 students from 67 countries.
