Why study at LDK?

Lycee De Kigali (LDK) is one of the oldest high schools in Rwanda that has surpassed expectations of many in terms of consistency in excellent performance.

LDK started in 1975 by the French as a science-modelled 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.

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.
