FOURTEEN secondary schools from Zimbabwe made it on the recent African Economist Magazine (top 100 list of best secondary schools which was released last month. The schools comprised both private and Government schools in the country and Africa as a whole. It is not known whether the latest rankings were from the current statistics of the schools in terms of education or the number of graduates it has produced over the years.
However, there are some schools of thought which feel that there are a lot of schools which are far much better academically than the ones listed, but they did not make the top grade.

On the rankings, South Africa leads the list with 35 secondary schools although the country falls behind Zimbabwe on third position on the literacy rate rankings with 86,4 percent.

As far as literacy rankings in Africa are concerned, Zimbabwe leads the continent at 90,7 percent literacy while Equatorial Guinea is second position with 87 percent but the Equatorial Guinea has only one secondary school in the top 100. Private schools and international recognised schools including missionary schools, outperform Government ones in terms of infrastructure and quality. From Zimbabwe, St George’s College, Prince Edward School and Gateway made it in the top 20 list while Allan Wilson was sitting on the edge on number 100.
