Learning at mis

MIS follows the guidelines of the British Curriculum leading to the internationally recognised examinations of IGCSEs (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) and AS (Advanced Subsidiary) levels or A (Advanced) levels.

A vast majority of our staff are British trained teachers or they have extensive experience of delivering the Cambridge International Programme.

In 2016, we became a fully registered Cambridge Primary School offering the CIE primary Checkpoint exams. This provides a clear measure of a child’s performance compared with children of a similar age around the world.

A Word

From Our Headteacher

“Benefiting from a truly inspiring location at the foot of the Uluguru Mountains, Morogoro International School (MIS) is a well-established, successful day and boarding school. We offer globally recognised curriculum options such as the Cambridge International Primary Curriculum, IGCSEs and A Levels, allowing your child to begin on a path of self-discovery and lifelong learning, blossoming into a well-rounded young person and responsible global citizen.

The values of an MIS education are clear. The purposefulness of the students, our drive for excellence and the highest quality in all we do as staff, will shine through on these pages. I also hope that you gain a sense of the care and compassion that underpins learning and success in all domains at MIS. We really do live by our motto, ‘Respect – Integrity – Responsibility’.

I hope you enjoy discovering our school through this website, but this really is no substitute for coming to see us and experiencing the school in action. Please contact us on +255 715 794 864 to arrange a tour of the school; we look forward to welcoming you warmly.”

What Parents are Saying

“I just wanted to share with you our sentiments in the care and support Ellie and Ethan are getting at MIS. The changes in my kids are just phenomenal. Not only socially, but academically. We speak with them weekly and Ellie’s praise for her teachers and excitement about school is refreshing.

MIS is truly an amazing find, a “home away from home” for my kids. A BIG THANK YOU to all teachers and staff for making it a safe and nurturing environment for the children. Certainly for my kids, MIS has proven to be “the best decision” for both our kids and us as parents…”

Lathifa S.

I have three kids at MIS. It’s a lovely school, not too big, not too small, just the right size for my child. The academics suit all three of our children well and has a good range of after school activities. Most importantly the teachers are committed and the children thriving. 

If you’re looking for a good school to give your kids a solid foundation MIS is the place for you. Do your homework: visit the school, speak to teachers, the heads and the parents. Visit during a sporting or social event and also speak to the children!  These are the true spokespersons of a school.

Mustansir M.

“We, as a family, find leaving MIS the hardest part of leaving Morogoro. My children enjoyed every moment they spent at school, and I am immensely grateful to all the incredible, passionate, loving teachers and assistants they had. All the friendships we (both parents and kids) developed in Morogoro started or are linked to MIS. It’s been great to watch the school improve in so many ways in the last few years. With the PTA being one of the best things! Thank you everyone for the great work you do for the school, I will follow your progress and will certainly miss you greatly.”

How it all began

Morogoro International School is one of the oldest genuine international schools in Tanzania having opened its doors to its campus within the grounds of Sokoine University in 1976. It moved to its present site on the edge of the town of Morogoro on the Dodoma road in 1992. Initially a primary school serving a predominately expatriate clientele, the International School of Morogoro as it was formally known, expanded into secondary school education in 2005 with its first cohort of IGCSE exam students sitting in 2010. In August 27th, 2015 we began offering A levels in 6th Form.
