Jomo Kenyatta High School is located in Bahati Division, Nakuru County in Kenya. From the time of inception in the 1970s, it has been a Mixed Boarding School until 2016 when it separated to a boys and girls boarding school.

History and operations

Initially, this school was known as Ngwataniro Secondary School, but later renamed after the first president of Kenya, Jomo Kenyatta. It was pioneered by, among others, the late Kihika Kimani.

It is located facing the Menengai Crater on the rise towards the Kenyan Eastern Highlands, in the Great Rift Valley.

In the 1990s, the school was one of the largest mixed schools in the province with a population of more than 1,000 students at any given time. By that time, in national ranking it was a District School.

Previous headmasters include Gill Singh, Joseph Njoroge and Joseph B. Gachanja, the latter having retired in 2008 after achieving the mandatory 55 years of age stipulated by the Teachers Service Commission of Kenya. The Current Principal is known as John Mureithi who took office in 2008.

Nakuru County also includes such schools as Lamurdiac, established by the late Kihika Kimani.
