Alliance Girls High School is undeniably one of the best secondary school in the country. Founded in 1948  by the Alliance of Protestant Missions, Alliance Girls’ High School was the first institution of higher education for African girls in Kenya.

The first 10 girls admitted to the school arrived on 28 February 1948. The school has gone on to become a towering institution among the academic elite. Some of its notable alumni include former First Lady Lucy Kibaki, Cabinet Secretary Charity Ngilu, first woman judge of High Court and Court of appeal – Lady Justice Effie Owuor, first woman cabinet minister – Hon. Nyiva Mwendwa among others.

Here’s a photo of the very first students enrolled at Alliance.
