Kitwe, like the rest of Zambia, has enjoyed free education to University level in the past. This enabled children from poor families an opportunity they would never have had access to. As the population continued to increase and the economy struggling to grow, the government has had to change to a partial fee paying system.
Private schools have supplemented government schools to meet the needs of the Kitwe community. Among the most outstanding have been Mpelembe Secondary School and Lechwe International School.
