Kinyago Dandora Secondary School

Kinyago Dandora Secondary school was founded in 2006 based on the vision of Ginger Palm, President Emerita of Kenya Children’s Fund. She saw that many students who completed grade 8 at Kinyago Dandora Primary School had to attend different high school across the country, which resulted in some of them missing out on our holistic environment that provides spiritual care, nutrition and education in a Christ centered environment.

The idea of our very own Secondary School was borne and realized prayerfully with the support of many churches and individuals that came alongside her. In 2004, the school acquired land at Baraka Mowlem and construction of the secondary campus began. The first cohort of students was enrolled in 2006 in grade 9, and since then the school has grown to a population of almost 250 students from grade 9 to grade 12. The school is proud to have graduated over 800 students to date.

Kinyago Dandora Secondary School is committed to providing quality Christian education to its students. This is reflected in its comprehensive curriculum, which includes academic, sporting, healthcare, nutrition and holistic guidance and counselling. The school believes in providing a well-rounded education to its students, ensuring that they receive not only academic education but also support for their overall well-being.


At Kinyago Dandora Secondary School, we pride ourselves in being a top-performing academic institution with a culture of discipline and Christian background. Our reputation has made us a preferred choice for many parents and students seeking high quality education.
To maintain our high standards, our admission process is highly competitive. We primarily admit students from our primary campus, Kinyago Dandora Primary School. However, on rare occasions when we have a few vacancies at KDSS. We follow a strict procedure to admit:

  • We publicly announce the vacancies to be filled and invite applications from bright needy students.
  • Our management and administrators form a panel that shortlists the applicants.
  • We conduct a two-pronged interview, with the examination department organizing the
    written test and the social work department handling the oral interview.
  • We also conduct home visits to assess the level of need of the applicants.
  • The reports from the various panels are compared and admissions decisions are made
    solely on merit.
  • Successful applicants are notified and invited to collect their admission letters.
