The study sought to establish the effect of stakeholders’ awareness of vision and mission statements on internal efficiency in terms of promotion rates and retention. The convergent parallel mixed-methods design was employed in the study. A sample size of 342 comprising 57 principals, 57 PA chairpersons; and 228 teachers in the quantitative phase and a further 54 respondents comprising 9 principals, 9 PA chairpersons and 36 teachers for qualitative strand.  Data were collected via Questionnaires, interview schedule, document analysis and observation schedules.  The study found that all stakeholders were aware of the school vision and mission statements, although the principals were more aware than the rest. The overall awareness was moderate and had a positive influence on internal efficiency in terms of grade promotion rate than on retention. It was concluded that stakeholders’ awareness of vision and mission statements has positive moderate influence on internal efficiency in public secondary schools. The study recommends that The Ministry of Education consistently sensitize key stakeholders on school vision and mission statements.
