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.”
