Officials say that the Sabis International School will offer nothing short of quality education aimed at churning out all rounded students ready to face modern challenges.
Africa Crest Education (ACE) Chairman Carl Bistany says the Sh2 billion school in Runda will heavily impact students with technology.
“It’s a world-class school built on twenty acres of land it’s going to have sports facilities, state of the art classrooms filled with technology. It’s quite an exciting project, the flagship project in sub-Saharan Africa,” Bistany said.
It will offer model is GSCE and A level system of education. Sabis International School, Runda, will open its doors in September this year.
Up to 2,000 students will be accommodated in the school, Centum Investment Company CEO, Dr James Mworia has said.
The school campus will feature modern classrooms equipped with the latest in educational technology, including interactive whiteboards, a sports centre, a modern performing arts theatre, a semi-Olympic pool, and extensive outdoor sports facilities.
Due to its proximity with United Nations agencies, UN Habitat and the UN Environmental Programme,the Sabis International School would likely target the expatriate community in Nairobi.
But the new international school in Kenya will have to contend with stiff competition from already existing schools such as Braeburn, Peponi School, German School of Nairobi and Lycée Denis Diderot, Breaside , Brookhouse, Hillcrest Schools, GEMS Cambridge International School, among others.
Centum also plans to launch 20 educational centers across Africa in partnership with Sabis.
