Athi River Campus

Strategically located near the Great Wall Apartments in Athi River, this campus was developed on a 5 acres property. Phase 1 of the Athi River campus was completed at the start of the school year in 2019 and houses students from pre-school through to grade 3. Two more phases will be constructed over the next three years. The newly built school includes a modern classrooms set-up with technology that enhances learning as well as grounds for sports and extra-curricular activities.

The school uses the the Kenyan national curriculum but takes a unique approach to teaching and learning. Classes are hands-on, interactive and student-centred, which means that the teacher guides the student to discover solutions themselves, rather than simply telling a student how to solve the problem. Each student is given individual attention to ensure that their unique talents and abilities are being uncovered and strengthened.

What else do you need to know?

Meals

The school provides all students with meals and this is not optional. There is a weekly meal plan that we adhere to. Having children eat a similar meal also helps manage allergies and hypersensitivity to foods for all children. If your child requires a special diet, please let the school leadership know and we shall work towards a solution.

Co- & Extra-curricular

Extra-curricular activities are available for all grades, and are selected on a termly basis giving every student the chance to try something new. Some of our activities may include (and not limited to): gymnastics, swimming, football, ballet, music, tae-kwo-ndo, dance, art, drama, skating, french and scouts.

In-house Therapist

We have a qualified educational therapist on the premises daily. The therapist has experience working with kids with learning issues and can teach kids skills and strategies to help them manage their learning difficulties and improve schoolwork.

The teachers are knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. You can see they are passionate about children and teaching.

 I wanted to tell you that my son is deliriously happy. He loves going to Pioneer! I am just so happy for him.”I really like their teaching philosophy of not spoon feeding the kids but giving them problems that they can come up with solutions to.
