4. Starehe Boys’ Centre and School (also popularly known as “Starch”)
is a partial board, boys – only educational boarding school located in Nairobi Kenya.
is unique for a Kenyan independent school in that it educates a large proportion of its students free, and most at a reduced rate. This stems from its founding charter as a charitable school. School fees are paid on a means-tested basis, with substantial subsidies paid by the school so that students from all walks of life are able to have a comprehensive, high quality, public school education that would otherwise be beyond the means of their parents or guardians as it may be.
