ABSTRACT Leaders, educationists, parents and policy makers have raised pertinent issues on performance in public versus private primary schools in the National exam (K.C.P.E) in Maragua Division. Hence a need to study nature of school and academic performance was raised in the division. The main objective was to examine the relationship between nature of schools and academic performance of pupils in K.C.P.E. Systematic sampling will be used to determine the number of schools that will be subjected to the investigation.
