At the end of each term, students and staff gather together at a closing meeting the night before students depart from campus for their breaks. Housekeeping items such as cleaning and packing and transportation are addressed in this meeting, in addition to the announcement of end of term scores.

The top ten girls in each form, in terms of scores, are announced, and then the top five most improved girls. This term, Franca (F2) ranked high in her form’s most improved list. Franca improved her scores by 126 marks, an incredible feat, many thanks to Daraja’s Pathways Program.

The Pathways Program is designed to keep Daraja students on track with their top academic performances. Any time a student holds a C- or below, they remain on campus for one third of the expected break in order to work closely with teachers, get more individualized help, and be in a quiet, focused study environ
