Established in 1961, the Aga Khan High School, Nairobi is a private co-educational, multicultural day secondary school. The school is situated in Westlands, along Waiyaki Way, just seven kilometres from Nairobi’s City Centre.

The school has a strong ethos based on values and spirituality; we strive to develop students who will exhibit:
