The overall was on the effect of school location on children enrolment. 80 households were selected and adults of age 18 and above from each household were interviewed. Purposive sampling was used in the selection of the sample size. This number of households sufficed the purpose of the study as those who were involved were able to share their accumulated experiences on school location and the associated effects of children enrollment. STATA 14 was used to make analysis. According to the study response rate, 55 of the households revealed to have school going children at 68.75% compared to the 31.25% that did not have school going children. ANOVA run on children enrolment against school location and school distance reported P values of (0.004 and 0.0145) respectively which were both statistically significant since the computed P values were less than the given significance level of 5%. Regression analysis was run to investigate the contribution of school location and school distance on children and the statistics reported were (P value = 0.044, Coef = 0.597) and (P value = 0.044, Coef = -0.768). The R value reported was 0.377 meaning 38% of the variations in the children enrolment is explained by school location and school distance.
