As far as possible, students are placed in the class with their same-age peers. An assessment of reading, writing and math will be done with all new students to ensure they are placed in the most appropriate class.

Students wishing to enter Grade 10 (2nd year of IGCSE) must have already completed one year of IGCSE at another school, in the relevant subjects.

Students wishing to join for Cambridge A levels must either have passed IGCSE with a grade of C or above, or if coming from NECTA or a different school system, must sit for entrance exams at IIS.

Where do students go after studying at IIS?

Students who leave during or after primary have gone on to Tanzanian primary schools or schools in their home countries, such as England, Germany, the US, Denmark. Families report that their children fit right in and often lead the class in these schools. Students who graduate from IIS Secondary school have gone on to IB Diploma and honors programs, as well as the University of Dar es Salaam, University of British Columbia, Monash University, Malaysia, Universiteit Utrecht, Western Kentucky University, South China University of Technology and other institutions, sometimes with full scholarship.

When is the best time of year to join IIS? 

The best for students is to join at the start of the school, in late August, so that they are a part of the class and don’t miss any of the curriculum. However, admissions are accepted at any time provided the class has space.

Can students join after taking the Tanzanian Std. VII exam? 

Students can join the IIS middle school in September or October after completing the Tanzanian Std. VII exams.

What is “family style boarding”?

Family style boarding means that boarders stay in an actual home with the boarding parents (rather than a dormitory on campus). Each bedroom, shared between 2 – 4 students has bunk beds and desks. The living room and dining space as well as outdoor recreation areas are shared. Students do have responsibilities for cleanliness and setting/clearing dishes. Rules are discussed and issues are resolved through ‘family meetings’ with all boarders and the boarding parents.

Where are the boarding homes? 

The boarding house is on the main road in town, on the Wilolesi side, across from Saba Saba. Transport is provided for students to and from school.
