Crawford International School

Crawford International School

School Profile:

Crawford International School opened its doors to students at our new state of the art facilities in Tatu City, Nairobi, Kenya on 4 September 2018. Crawford International School is aligned with Crawford International that has been a proud leader in progressive and high-end private education in South Africa since 1993.

Crawford International boasts nineteen of the top achieving private schools in South Africa. Together we have challenged every traditional and conventional practice in education in South Africa with great success. In the process we have assisted thousands of Crawford students to enter the tertiary space with a solid, internationally focussed and sound academic foundation. More-ever, our students, or “Crawfordians” as they are known, develop a strong sense of empathy, understanding and respect towards their fellow human beings due to our unique approach to education. This unique approach has assisted our students to develop a stronger self-confidence as they adapt much easier to the challenges of the post-school world. Crawford International will adopt the same approach to assist our Crawfordians in our Kenyan school.

Education is never a static process and Crawford constantly reassesses curriculum and teaching approaches, adapting to the child’s needs and aligning with global goals and trends. Crawford International School is a trailblazer in innovative and forward-thinking education. Every student is acknowledged and offered the opportunity to excel. The mottos “Every Child a Masterpiece” and “Commitment to Excellence” underpins all. The child-centred approach ensures that our students examine and realise their own potential.

Crawford International School offers an academic foundation of the highest order and ensures that each student is developed into a fully-rounded individual whilst being skilled to interact in a collaborative manner. Cultural success in Arts, Music, Dance and Drama, is a cornerstone of the education that we provide, while sport is enjoyed by every sports-loving student and community involvement is celebrated by every civic-minded citizen.
