The topic of study in this research work was, Teachers preparation and academic performance of students in selected secondary schools in Kiabuya zone Suba District Kenya. This study was guided by such objectives like these ones stated below: To establish whether teachers do preparations of lesson plans. To find out if teachers prepare and use teaching aids. To find out the relationship between teachers preparation and academic performance of students in schools. The population of study was made up of 2100 students and 77 teachers giving a total of 2177. During the research, the following instruments were employed to help reach success, such included open ended questionnaire, rigid questionnaire and close ended questionnaire. The findings were as follows: Scheming was not to date as only 16 out of 24 respondents managed to scheme. The lesson planning was very much below average, 3 teachers out of 24 made lessons above average. Teaching aids preparation was wanting as only 10 out of 24 did prepare them and finally success to students' performance was found to be based on teachers' preparation. To this, I therefore recommended that: teachers make schemes on the first week of school opening, the government should staff schools well to reduce teachers work load, workshops should be organized to make teachers know the importance of frequent and good preparation of schemes, lessons, teaching aids and other necessary records for teaching.
