Mugunda houses one of the best high schools in the country, St. Regina Nairutia Secondary School. Founded by Reverend Romano in 2008 with overwhelming support from the community, St. Regina provides local children access to quality and affordable secondary education. The school has a complete Science laboratory, e-learning centre with computers, two libraries, private study rooms, a kitchen and school bus. It offers co-curricular activities such as music, drama and athletics. Enrollment has almost tripled since the school first opened and many students have gone on to study at prestigious learning institutions such as Egerton University, Karatina University, Kisii University, and Day Star University.
Discussions are underway between members of the Ward-Level Committee and school authorities on how vocational training can be encouraged within the school.
