Muguga is a boy’s boarding school which is situated 15 kilometers outside Nairobi. The facilities are simple but adequate. It is a private school which is very well maintained. It has a very large and leafy campus with classrooms and dormitories of all brick and cement which are kept neat and tidy. It is also a school that performs well on the secondary school final exams as the school offers a broad range of subjects for the students to take. While it is a private school where we place the boys who cannot get into better schools, it does deliver a good education and the boys seem to be happy there. The school has extensive grounds for sports which many of the boys enjoy.
The boys follow a rigorous schedule – up at 5:00 am for washing, studies begin promptly at 5:30 am and continue until breakfast at 7:00 am. Classes begin at 8:00 am and continue all day with a break for lunch in the dining hall and some sports activities in the afternoon. Dinner in the dining hall and then study time until lights out at 10:30 pm. Long days!
