Kisumu Girls High School has been closed indefinitely.
According to reports, the school was closed on Sunday following a period of sustained unrest from students.
The reports also indicate that some of the students have been complaining about inhabitable environment at the school.
A section of the students reportedly demanded the resignation of the current principal and other officials in the school's administration.
The situation escalated on Sunday morning, leading to loud chants from the students, prompting police officers to be deployed to the institution to restore normalcy.
Reports also indicated that the situation had been tense from Friday, with the situation boiling over through the weekend forcing the abrupt closure.
Nyanza Regional Director Of Education Nelson Sifuna revealed that the students also complained of corporal punishment.
The official explained that some of the allegations were being investigated by the school administration.
“The situation worsened yesterday when officers from the National Government Administration and Ministry of Education tried to address them at the Dining Hall but they were angry," he added.
Sifuna revealed that the students refused to voice their grievances leading to change of tact, giving them papers to write.
Kenyans.co.ke contacted the school but did not get a response by the time of publishing this article.
Meanwhile, photos circulating online, showed the school girls carrying their backpacks heading home with some boarding boda bodas at the school gate.
The photos also showed adults believed to be parents and guardians at the school gate.
If the issue is not resolved, form four students will be disadvantaged as they prepare for the national examinations scheduled for November.
This came two days after the Ministry of Education announced the official closing dates for schools countrywide.
Basic Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang announced that the third term will run up to October 27 to allow candidates to sit for the national examinations.
