Moi Girls' High School - Eldoret is a national girls' boarding school managed by the school's Board of Governors. It is a Christian non-denominational school providing the secondary cycle of the 8-4-4 system of education.
Moi Girls’ High School – Eldoret has a long history dating back to 1928. It was first established then as a European Primary School to cater for the children of the white settlers in the then White Highlands. The primary school was later renamed Highlands Primary School.
In the 1930’s, the school was moved across the Sosiani river to what is now Hill School. A teacher training college was started later in the 1930’s but it did not successfully take off. The need for a girls’ high school for the white settlers in Eastern Africa saw the founding of the present school. It was opened in 1954 with the name New Girls’ High School. The school was later renamed The Highlands School.
