Welcome to UWC East Africa
In August 2019, International School Moshi became

UWCEA is the 18th UWC school worldwide and the second in Africa.
With campuses in Moshi (Kilimanjaro) and Arusha, UWC East Africa is a long established and fully accredited independent International Baccalaureate (IB) school in northern Tanzania. With a structured residential programme, and the PYP, MYP and Diploma curriculum, UWCEA provides an education for children from both the local and expatriate communities. Our students are aged from 3 to 19 years. We have over 500 students, on two campuses, from over 40 different nationalities. As well as day students we have about 200 residential students across both campuses. We provide a broad range of educational offerings whilst maintaining a high standard of individual care.
Our Arusha Campus is a day school with over 200 students situated on the western side of Arusha. In addition to offering the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), and IB Diploma Programme, we added residential houses for diploma students in August 2019. The Arusha Campus has a spectacular view of Mt Meru.
The Moshi Campus in Kilimanjaro Region was established in 1969 and has over 280 students. UWC East Africa was the first school in Africa to offer the IB Diploma which began in Moshi in the 1970s. The Moshi Campus also offers the PYP and MYP as well as the IB Diploma. Moshi Campus has a number of residential houses for all ages above 7 years. About half the students in Moshi are residential; others are day students living with their families in and around Moshi. The Moshi Campus has a close up and impressive view of Mt Kilimanjaro.
