One school under two mountains
UWC East Africa was established in 1969 as International School Moshi and now has two campuses in northern Tanzania, one in Moshi at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro, and one in Arusha, overlooked by Mount Meru.
While we operate as two campuses we are a single school with a singular board and singular mission.
Our governance therefore operates under the following principles.
One set of Guiding statements
comprising a Mission Statement and Values.
Thus both campuses share a common set of goals and a unified vision for the future of the school.
The Director is the leader of the School and works with both campuses to ensure that our progress is in line with our goals.
One curriculum framework
UWC East Africa offers the curriculum of the International Baccalaureate through the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP).
One set of finances
The board is thus able to ensure that the School’s income is used effectively across both campuses to best meet the needs of UWC East Africa.
One legal entity
UWC East Africa is registered as a company in Tanzania (under the name International School Moshi Ltd) with one Governing Board who manages the School’s affairs.
Serves Multiple communities
Students on both campuses come from a variety of different national, cultural and economic backgrounds, with varying needs and expectations; some are day students and some, are boarders.
Meets Different needs
Each campus may operate in different ways, within the School’s Guiding Statements and curriculum framework, to meet the differing needs of the communities they serve.
