Winners in the 2017 drama festival in Kirinyaga County pulled another first in the KCPE exam after six candidates scored over 400 marks.
Leah Wanjira Muteti of Multiple Academy emerged top with 422 marks.
The school emerged third nationally in this year's drama festivals held in Kisumu in April.
The school, which is associated with many talents, will benefit greatly from the proposed school curriculum that places talent as a priority alongside academics and technology, says headteacher, Mr Gichuru Gicharu.
"While arts, culture and sports have always been regarded as extra-curricular activities, in the new curriculum, they have the same status as academic subjects, and this is part of our syllabus," he said.
In the new set-up by the Ministry of Education, schools will be offering talent, academic and technology-based activities as subjects.
This means that one can study the arts, such as drama, music, poetry, filmmaking and fine arts and pursue these courses in university.
Drama teacher Albert Murimi said, "The school is associated with many talents. This year we scooped the best position in drama festivals in a narrative titled "Christina" during the Aberdare Region drama festival".
"At the national level we managed to be second runners-up and in academics, in this year's KCPE results we managed to get six top candidates," Mr Murimi said.
The six candidates are Leah Muteti (422), Erick Kamau (417), Ramadhan Cheda (411), Felistas Njau (408), Purity Nyaguthii (408) and Ramadhan Mohammed (408).
Leah, who scored the highest mark in the area is Mr Murimi's daughter.
The drama teacher could not hide his joy after the results were released.
The school's director, Ms Grace Kagwanja, said they registered an impressive rise of 13.86 points from last year's performance.
"The secret is consistency, attention to details and prayers," she said.
While releasing the results on Tuesday, Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i said all those who scored over 400 marks, from both public and private schools, will be admitted to the national schools.
In the past, priority was given to pupils from public schools.
