Nairobi is the capital and largest city in Kenya, having about four million inhabitants. West Nairobi School (WNS) is located in Karen, Kenya, a suburb to the west of Nairobi. Adjacent to the Ngong Forest, WNS is very scenic and peaceful. The temperature is consistent year round, remaining between 20 and 27 degrees celcius (65 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit) with rains occurring in November-December and again in March-May. English is the national language of Kenya and Kiswahili is the language of culture. Tourism is the number one industry in Kenya, followed closely by the tea and coffee industry.
West Nairobi School is an international Christian community founded on biblical truths, existing to educate and nurture students to become responsible citizens and devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
WNS is uniquely poised to serve both the missionary and national population in Kenya. By offering quality education, it frees parents to serve the people of Kenya and the rest of East Africa.
West Nairobi School serves children from pre-school through the 12th grade and is fully accredited.
WNS follows the traditional American school calendar beginning in the middle of August and concluding at the end of May. We observe both major American and Kenyan holidays (please visit our website for the school calendar).
WNS is looking for teachers who thrive in small classroom environments (less than 25) and who are dedicated to the total education of the children of missionaries and Kenyan nationals. WNS offers a family atmosphere in a picturesque location in a country known for its beauty, wildlife and friendliness. WNS students are respectful, motivated and enjoyable. We hope you will consider joining our family!
