The WSS community.

Woodland Star is not just a school, but a community of learners, dreamers, and thinkers who value diversity and respect for each individual. Located in the emerald tea fields of Tigoni, just a short drive from Nairobi, Woodland Star is a small, progressive international school that offers a transformative learning experience for students of all backgrounds and cultures.

At Woodland Star, we believe that true learning happens when we embrace each other’s stories and celebrate each other’s presence. We have created a community where everyone’s voice is heard, everyone’s ideas are valued, and collaboration supersedes individualism. Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment where students can explore their passions, develop their skills, and discover their unique talents.

We have embraced the Kinyarwanda word “Muraho”, which means, “I celebrate your presence”, as a key expression in the story-language of our school. It is a reminder that every individual is important, and that their presence is valued. We strive to make Muraho a central part of our school culture, weaving it into our structures, values, and policies to help foster relationships that are based on celebration of one another.

At Woodland Star, we offer a range of programs and activities that are designed to encourage our students to reach their full potential. From challenging academic courses to diverse extra-curricular offerings, we believe that each student can find their own path to success. Our dedicated and experienced teachers are committed to providing an innovative and engaging learning experience that stretches and inspires our students.

Woodland Star is a place of transformation, where students can find their voice, explore their passions, and connect with a community of learners who are committed to making the world a better place. We invite you to join us in celebrating each other’s presence and discovering the transformative power of true learning.

From us to you,
