Private Schools In Nairobi Ranked The Most Expensive in Africa.
While some people believe that education is a basic need and that it does not need to be extravagant, another group believes that quality does not come cheap.
In the latest report, International Schools in Nairobi, Kenya, have been named the most expensive educational institutions on the African continent.
According to the International Schools Database 2021, international schools charged a maximum of Ksh3.37 million per student per year.
According to the report, the average fee paid in the majority of schools is Ksh828,096 per year, with the cheapest schools charging Ksh118,040.
Nairobi was followed by Addis Ababa, with an average charge of Ksh737,750 and a maximum charge of Ksh3,089,470.
With a median charge of Ksh681,000, Kampala was ranked third, followed by Johannesburg, Casablanca, and Cape Town.
According to the research, Africa remains the world’s cheapest region for international education, but there have been some price shifts.
The most dramatic shift has occurred in Casablanca, which has dropped from the most expensive African city last year to the second cheapest this year.
“This is not because of a dramatic change in overall prices, but instead a significant drop in the median price,” read the statement in part.
Nairobi had the highest fee charged between the first and third quartile, which has the majority of the school, ranging between an average of Ksh 565,000 and Ksh1.65 million.
