Marion Schools started in 1983. The founders and vision bearers of The Marion Schools, CLLR. Samuel Mbugua WaMarion and Rev. Hannah Wairimu Mbugua began a walk of faith, faith whose ‘mustard seed’ was a kindergarten in a City Council 2-bedroom house in Kahawa West Estate.
The mustard seed has surely grown and matured and been highly favoured and blessed; to stand now as a group of schools which are Marion Preparatory (Primary and Kindergarten) and Senior (Secondary) now Kahawa West Campus with a population of 1000 plus.
Marion Preparatory School started as a nursery school in 1983 with a population of 3 students. The idea of starting a school initially came when Founding Directors’ children started going to school. He wanted them to have good education and though there were public schools, they wanted a better school for their children. They ended up taking their children to a private school, which was far away from home.
