Lesotho Study and Training


The school system in Lesotho consists of a 7-year primary school, which is free of charge and compulsory, as well as a 5-year secondary school, divided into a 3-year and a 2-year cycle. Under the supervision and direction of the Ministry of Education, schools in the country are mainly run by the three dominant Christian communities. Reading and writing skills in Lesotho are one of the highest in Africa. In 2009, it was estimated in the adult population (from 15 years) to 90% (83% for men and 95% for women). In 2009, attendance at the primary school for the current age groups was 73%. The country has a university, The National University of Lesotho, just outside Maseru. In 2009, the education sector accounted for 12% of total government expenditure. See TOPSCHOOLSINTHEUSA for TOEFL, ACT, SAT testing locations and high school codes in Lesotho.
