Mt Kenya schools produce quality grades nationally

Top national and extra county schools in Mt Kenya region have produced quality grades in the just released Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination results.

The surprise of the year from the region was Mioro Secondary School in Mathioya, Murang’a County, which produced the most improved student nationally.

Kamau Josephat Mwangi with an A- of 77 points hogged the national headlines and was cited by Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed alongside five others for remarkable improvement in the four years between their KCPE and KCSE exams.

Mwangi topped the mixed day school in the home village of former Cabinet minister Joseph Kamotho after joining the school with 278 marks in KCPE.

A tabulation of the results showed that top national schools such as Alliance High, Alliance Girls, Mang’u and Mary Hill topped the region with the number of As.

The top scorers in Alliance Girls High School included Mel Christine (84), Mwangi Sandra Wangari (83), Maingi Arnet Wanjiku (82), Mwangi Christine Njeri (81) and Wachiuri Pauline Wakiuru, Senete Cherop Ruth, Anditi Imelda Jutta, Aganda Jadis Azade, Kihiko Grace Njoki and Mercy Moraa Nyamusi with 80 points each.

At Mary Hill Girls, Otieno Jane Awour scored an A of 82 points while Jepkoech Mercy, Njuguna Martha Wangechi and Ndege Rachael Wangui all of Loreto High School Limuru had As of 83, 82 and 81 points, respectively.

Also with 81 points from the same school was Cindy Florence Jagero.

Quality grades were few outside the traditional national schools.

In Meru County, for example, Muteithia Dominic Laibuni from Nkubu High school – an extra county school - had an A of 81 same as Dan Muriithi Matumbu of Meru School – a national school.

No other school in Meru was immediately shown to have produced a straight A as of yesterday.


In Embu, straight As were recorded by Mueni Rita Kanene of Kyeni Girls with 81 points.

The school had 19 students with A- and 28 scored a B+. Moi Mbiruri has 9 A- and B+ (24), while Kangaru School has four students posting grade A- of 75 points.

In Laikipia, Ndururumo High School’s Simon Mwaura had 81 points while Gidraf Mureithi and Charles Kariuki had 80 points each.

In Nyeri, Kariuki Collins Munene of a resurgent Nyeri High School also managed a straight A of 82 points ahead of Kamau Caroline Muringi and Silvia Wahito both of Bishop Gatimu Ngandu Girls with 81 points each.

In Murang’a, top graders included Waithira S Ndichu of Njiiri (81).

The schools that made it to the top 100 students list nationally
in the region were Alliance High School, Alliance Girls, Loreto High School Limuru, Mang’u High, Mary Hill, Murang’a High and St Anne’s Secondary School-Lioki.

A total of 15 students out of the top 100 nationally came from Alliance High, while Alliance Girls High School contributed five to the list.
Mel Christine from Alliance Girls High School was the top candidate in Mt Kenya region with a mean grade of A of 87.274 points, while Njenga Brian Ndungu from Mang’u High School came second with an A of87.259 points.

Also producing the best performers in the A- category included schools such as Kisima Academy, Kiambu High School, Mugoiri Girls, Mahiga Girls, Chogoria Girls, Chogoria Boys, Thika High School, St Francis Mangu, Kagumo High, Nyeri High School, Nyahururu and Kangaru School.

Mioro Secondary School Principal David Mbugua said Kamau led 81 candidates with a consistent performance since he joined the school.

The school had registered 45 boys and 36 girls for the exam.
