Starehe Boys Centre and School is a proud member of the RoundSquare, a worldwide association of schools which shar a commitment beyond academic excellence, to personal development and responsibility.

Round Square schools are founded on a philosophy which embraces a series of six pillars or precepts which can be summed up in the word IDEALS. They are:

  1. Internationalism 
  2. Democracy
  3. Environment
  4. Adventure
  5. Leadership
  6. Service

Students at Round Square schools make a commitment to addressing each of these pillars beyond academic excellence, to personal development and responsibility through exchanges, work projects, community service and adventure.

Round Square is based on the theories of experiential educational philosopher Kurt Hahn. Dr. Hahn, one of the twentieth century’s foremost revolutionaries in education, believed that schools should have a greater purpose beyond preparing students for college and university. He believed that it was crucial for young people to prepare for life by having them face it directly and experience it in ways that would demand courage, generosity, imagination, principle and resolution.

All member schools share a strong underlying belief: this is the view of learning by doing. It is an ongoing process of self-confrontation and formation, involving a fundamental objective of the full and individual development of every student into a whole person…academically, physically, culturally and spiritually, within the supportive environment of a school community. This underlying belief also embraces the importance of service to others, adventure and leadership training, responsibility and international understanding. All these are essential in preparing young people to meet the challenges of the future with confidence and compassion. For more information on RoundSquare please visit 

The Roundsquare Representative for Starehe Boys’ Centre & School is Mr. Robert Mwangi who also teaches German.
