Learn About St. Mary's

Established in 1939, St. Mary’s is one of the most respected private schools in Kenya because of our time tested commitment to creating and maintaining a conducive learning environment modeled on the catholic tradition.  

St. Mary's is a private catholic day school. Founded by the Irish Holy Ghost Fathers in Parklands, our school is currently situated within an expansive 85 Acres in Muthangari, Nairobi. The school is one of many owned and managed by the Archdiocese of Nairobi.

We have a combined program consisting of Junior (Primary) and Senior School (Secondary). Our Junior School teaches the KCPE curricula while our Senior School programme teaches both KCSE and IGCSE. Once admitted most of our students advance in the school from Std 1 in primary to secondary and finally up to university entrance examinations in our IB program. Though primarily a boys school from primary upwards our 26 year old IB Diploma program is co-educational and admits girls.

We are internationally recognized and accredited with most of our students getting placement in some of the best universities in the World.
