Science can be a difficult subject without visual aides,
lab equipment and facilities to do experiments. 
Equipping the chemistry, physics and biology labs
has been an intentional focus.





 
 
Gilbert, Chemistry Teacher

 
BLISS is one of only 3 secondary schools
out of 69 in the District to offer Physics.
 


This is exceptional for a day school. 

In 2009, their science team won 3rd place
at the Provincial Science Fair.

Future Prospects

In November every year, the Form 4 (senior) students take the fourteen day Kenyan National Examination.  This highly rigorous and competitive exam determine students’ options for advancement to a university, college or trade school.  More than 300,000 Form 4 students across Kenya take the exam each year, and the top 20,000 are awarded public university acceptance and Kenyan government scholarships.  Students below the top 20,000 have the option to attend a university at a much higher cost, or attend two-three year college/diploma/certificate programs. Though students at BLISS cannot afford the tuition.
