“The top 3 most expensive cities are all very close together in terms of median prices for international schools. Nairobi, Johannesburg and Casablanca all have median prices of around Ksh681,000 (USD5,300) per year.”

The findings were based on quotes provided for one student for one full term which excludes one-off costs such as enrollment and application fees.

Most International schools in Nairobi are reserved for students from families with heavy financial muscles, such as politicians, celebrities, and other high-ranking individuals.


However, some students are able to study in these prestigious institutions through scholarships.
