Lycee de Kigali (LDK) is one of the oldest high schools in Rwanda that has surpassed the expectations of many in terms of consistency in an excellent performance. LDK was started in 1975 by the French as a science-modeled high school. Indeed, it has transcended leaps and bounds to become one of the best mixed high schools in Rwanda. Since the Government took charge of the school in 1982, there has been enormous progress in all aspects.
Today, LDK accommodates over 1, 400 students for both O'Level and A'levels. LDK is a partnership between the Government of Rwanda and Parents. Thus, the school receives students from all corners of Rwanda with different academic backgrounds. Our schooling system nurtures them into the best products you can ever have on the market.
This is justified by the consistent 100% pass rate and admission on state scholarship at various higher education institutes.
We strive to produce students with the right balance of; academics, and societal values.
Like many other institutions in Rwanda, the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi left the school in tatters. After the genocide, LDK started from scratch, picking up the pieces to again mold it into a model institution.
Post-Genocide, LDK underwent major changes and reforms, all aimed at making it a better institution, and today these efforts have paid off. LDK is one of the best schools in Rwanda, feeding into major universities in Rwanda, the region, and from across the globe.
Academic performance remains consistent. Similarly, performance in other aspects such as sports and extra-curricular activities, discipline, debates and more is also something to be proud of at LDK.
LDK will be nationally recognized as an outstanding school, instilling a passion for life-long learning in all students. In addition, the school’s driving spirit is captured in its Vision which is premised on its expansion and utilization of available resources with the ultimate objective of rising to the highest learning institution.
At Lycee de Kigali we actively encourage and facilitate the achievement of the highest possible academic results, the formation of each students’ moral character, unique life skills, capacities, talents, and the creation of strong communal and social responsibility among students which mold them into responsible citizens. In partnership with parents and our community, LDK exists to provide a comprehensive educational experience that is high quality, challenging, and inspires all students to make a positive contribution to society.
