Education

Create engaged students, dedicated faculty and broad, STEM based curriculum 

Students excel in a science-bias and expanded Tanzanian arts curriculum that rigorously prepares students to do well on the national tests and to prepare for their future beyond school.

A strong athletics, arts and leadership focus complements the academic focus and develops lifelong leadership and achievement skills.

Tanzanian art, music and dance and athletics enrich MWK students’ education and provide a productive, safe place to be outside of school hours. MWK also features computers, a first-class science laboratory and a large library with areas to read and study, all achieved with generous grants from TEF donors.

MWK encourages students to continue their education beyond elementary and secondary school. MWK offers graduates the unique opportunity to stay on campus in the break between secondary school and the next level of study through the MWK Internship Project. They gain solid job experience assisting in classrooms, tutoring, and providing support for teachers and administrators.   

MWK Schools teach all government-required courses plus additional leadership, cultural and athletic enrichment courses and experiences at all levels.
