Kiribati Education and Training



The children in Kiribati start school at the age of six. They have compulsory schooling for nine years and most of them complete primary school. More than nine out of ten Kiribati can read and write.

After a substantial expansion, almost all children have access to high school in their home islands. Most colleges are run by church communities. Some higher education is offered at the "capital atoll" Tarawa where technicians, teachers, nurses and sailors are trained and where the University of Fiji has a branch.
