On Friday, 25 October 2019, International School Moshi (ISM) celebrated 50 years of excelling in international education in Tanzania. This remarkable achievement was elevated by the school’s recent membership to the UWC (United World Colleges) movement and rebranding as UWC East Africa. UWC East Africa is the newest member to the UWC movement, which makes it the 18th UWC worldwide and the second UWC school on the African continent.

The school currently has 176 students enrolled who are being sponsored by their UWC National Committees – many of these are receiving significant financial aid. 26 of these are through the Tanzania National Committee and almost half are from across Africa. Becoming a UWC involves a substantial change in the composition of the student body, with a more diverse range of international students attending the school.
In the last 50 years, ISM strived to create a learning environment where young people can test and try out new ideas as they grow and make sense of the world around them. As UWC East Africa the school will grow in diversity and increase opportunities for youth in the region.
