We'Ve led the way ...

The school is established in a serene natural environment surrounded by luxuriant vegetation cover on the hillside of Kimochoch host. It is situated 20 Km away from Kabarnet town on the Kabarnet -Tenges road. The Founder and Patron of the school, His Excellency, The Second President of the Republic of Kenya, Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi, C.G.H., established the school pursuant to his concern for access to quality education by the Kenyan youth. The school motto: BE MINDFUL OF OTHERS is taken from the Patron’s quest in setting up this school and is immortalized through his support to a number of needy and bright students in the school. His hope is that in turn these students excel and help their societies come up economically and socially. The students also participate in charitable activities to help the less fortunate in society, and the school from this year will use Moi Day (10th October annually) to participate in this noble cause.

Since inception the school has excelled in spiritual, academic and character development of its learners in a co-educational set up. Contrary to the beliefs of many, Sacho High School tops the list of the best co-educational schools in the Republic of Kenya and continues to train well-adjusted boys and girls who fit well not only locally but also in the global village. The table below shows our KCSE school performance from the year 2007 upto the year 2017.
