For a student to join a certain national school he/she must have selected the schools during the secondary school selection process. There are four clusters of national schools in Kenya and KCPE students are expected to choose a national school from each cluster. Those who meet the selection criteria are given the chance to join the national school of their choice.

How are national schools classified into clusters?

The clustering of national schools was done based on infrastructure and the number of human resources within the schools. A school like Pangani is cluster 1 but Alliance High School is in cluster 3.  The performance of both schools is good but Pangani is in cluster 1 because it has a higher student capacity, more human resources or the infrastructure may be better.
