You'll agree with me that coming up with a list of the best secondary schools in Africa from different countries across the entire continent is going to be difficult as different countries follow different guidelines and curriculum as well as completely different regional assessments. According to the author, attention was given to schools that have historical prominence at a national and regional level during compilation of this list. That is the reason most schools that featured on the list are also quite old, schools that were very good at a national level, yet lacked regional presence were also considered given that they did not have any regional assessments to partake.

South Africa is still dominating the list with over 30 colleges and secondary schools making the list of 100 Best Secondary Schools in Africa, of course Grey College South Africa is dominating the list at number one position. Kenya only managed eight slots with Rift Valley Academy emerging No. 2 in Africa and overall best secondary school in Kenya. We have two schools in Zimbabwe taking positions 5 and 6, with another Kenyan school at number 7. Academic giants like Alliance, Starehe Boys and Lenana ranked very many slots behind Rift Valley Academy. Here is a list of 100 best secondary schools in Africa.
