Kianda Foundation opened Kianda School as a result of numerous requests from past students of Kianda College. The Foundation aims at promoting the educational, professional, cultural and spiritual welfare of women in Kenya. It achieves this aim through the establishment and management of schools, colleges, and training centers for both women and girls, thus promoting their general education. Kianda School is one of the projects of the Foundation.
The School started in 1977 with 40 students, and now has a capacity for 900. It is a day school for girls with a Primary and Secondary section. The School has ranked among the top 10 schools in the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination. The School fosters a close working relationship between parents, teachers, and students. Special courses on parenting enrich this relationship.
