The domination of private schools in the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education examination results extends to the countryside where public institutions have been largely edged out in lists of top 100 candidates in each province.

A report complied by the Daily Nation from the official results released by the Kenya National Examinations Council shows that private schools dominated in the lists of top 100 students at both provincial and national level.
The ranking examined at the list of top 100 candidates and the schools whose students appeared most frequently.
The ranking does not, however, capture the mean grades of all schools across the country and does not imply these are the top schools in the country.
In Western Province, Hill School in Kakamega was dominant, with 46 of the 106 pupils in that region’s list of top 100 performers.
Its best candidate, Trevor Adika Luvai, was 15th nationally and third in the province. He shared his national ranking with another candidate.
The top list in all regions exceeds 100 because of tied results. Eight students from Hill School Kakamega make it to the list of top 100 in Kenya.
Other schools that had significant numbers in the top 100 in Western Province were Marell Educational Centre and St Anne’s SG Mumias with seven each, Highway Academy with six and Booker Academy and Mumias Central with four each.
Nyeri’s Good Shepherd School ruled the roost in Central Province, with eight of its candidates making it to the top 100 of that region.
It was closely followed by Bethlehem Academy and Nyahururu Elite with seven and six candidates respectively while Pleasant View School had five.
Musa Gitau, a public school with a record of good performance, and Lily Academy, which produced last year’s top candidate, had four candidates in the top 100 in the region each.
In Eastern, Fred Academy from Meru led the pack with 16 of its candidates in the top 100 in that region, followed by Lukenya Academy with nine students.
Star Sheikh Academy and Kanginga Oasis Academy had seven candidates each, while Kathingiri Boys followed with five of its candidates on the list.
In Coast Province, where the enrolment rates improved significantly with the Free Primary Education, Mwingo Academy, a private school, led with nine of its candidates among the best performers.
Nyali Primary School, Pamalo Junior Academy and Loreto Convent had six students each in the provicial top 100, while the Aga Khan Academy had five.
In Nairobi, Makini Ngong Road Academy, which has for many years produced Kenya’s best KCPE candidates, had the largest number, 15, in the capital city’s top 100.
It was followed by Newlight Komarock, Ruaraka Academy and Marion Preparatory with five candidates each.
In Nyanza, St Peter’s Cape View, which produced the joint third best candidate countrywide, Ochieng Rabin, had 14 candidates in that region’s top 100 best performers.
Set Greenhill Academy, whose top student was ranked joint fifth nationally, had six in top 100 and was followed by Golden Elites School, which had five.
Other schools whose top performers did significantly well were St Joseph’s Combined Academy, Father Scheffer and Sony Complex, which had four candidates each in the region’s top 100.

In Rift Valley, Gilgil Hills Academy and a public school, Echariria DEB, had the biggest representation with 10 candidates each among the best in the province.

Mt St Mary’s Girls had seven, Chumo Education Centre five, while Ongata Academy, Kericho Primary and Molo Academy had four each.
In North Eastern, Young Muslim Academy led the pack with 10 candidates in the regions best 100, Abu-Ubeyoa Private and Ali-Hakim had six candidates each while Garissa Academy had five.
A group of 40 schools — nearly all of them private — produced the top-ranked candidates across the country.
With the Kenya National Examination Council no longer ranks schools based on their mean scores, the number of candidates a school produces in the top 100 in their province and at the national level was an indicator of how well the school had performed.
Private schools normally use the number of candidates that have passed well as proof that they offer quality education, with the ultimate aim of drawing in more pupils.
For the best candidates, good marks guarantee entry to a national or provincial secondary school, which is usually a boost to their academic performance at that level.
