In the recent years our school reached very good ranking positions in the nationwide final exams CSEE of Form IV students. Usually we are within the leading 15-20 % of all tanzanian schools, see graph below. If you like please check yourself our results of the last years online .
In 2021 all participants of the final exams passed. Congratulations to the Form IV (2021)!
Since this time we haven't had so much students, in total only 37, the school slided into the reference group of small schools. This happened to us for the first time since many years. Thus this ranking result is not directly comparable to those of previous years (and thus not included in the graph below). We are working very hard to further improve our good learning conditions and to come back to reach our previous student numbers. The original 2021 results are found here: https://matokeo.necta.go.tz/results2021/csee/results/s0492.htm
Although we were facing very special conditions by COVID19 in the challenging year 2020, the good work of teachers and students at Kishumundu Secondary School continued: Kishumundu Secondary School placed on position 604 of 3956 tanzanian Secondary Schools. Within Kilimanjaro region it placed on position 64 of 275 schools. CONGRATULATIONS!

Students of our german partner School Kopernikusschule Freigericht created a movie about our school on their latest visit in 2018 - have a look, Karibu!
In 2018, on December 4th, a constitutional meeting took place to establish the Kilimanjaro Skills Support, an organisation with the aim to support the further development of our school and of the Vocational Training Centre (VTC) in Moshi. This new organisation shall work Hand in Hand with our already existing german supporter organization Helfen macht Schule.
