Moi Naikarra Secondary School has emerged the top performer in Narok County after posting a mean score of 6.6 points out of a possible 12 in this year’s KCSE exams.

The school will also send 96 students out of the 102 who sat the exams to university.

School principal John Kuyo expressed his satisfaction with the result, which saw two students score a B+, 15 score a B-plain, eight a B- and 44 a C+.

Last year, the school sent 122 candidates to university out of 190 who sat the examinations.

At the time, students had an uneasy Christmas after the Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) withheld their results for three weeks.

The exams body was investigating alleged malpractices at the school. However, the institution was later cleared and the results released.

“At a time like this last year, we were very anxious because Knec had withheld our results, but this time we have confirmed that we are the true champions.”

Moi Naikarra was followed closely by Masikonde Day Secondary School, which had a mean score of 6.5 points.

Ilmotiook and Maasai Girls secondary schools followed closely, with a mean score of 6.3 points each.

Kuyo attributed his school’s continued success to high discipline and co-operation among students, parents and teachers.

“This year we had no student dropping out, no one was suspended or expelled due to indiscipline,” he said.
