Successful teaching

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


Update 2022

The results of 2022 confirm once more that excellent work is done at Kishumundu Secondary School. All form IV students passed the final exams. Of the students 5 accomplished with DIV I, 19 with DIV II, 11 with DIV III and 13 with DIV IV (Source: ).

These results are outstanding!!


Unfortunately NECTA stopped to indicate the nationwide ranking position as well as districtwide positions of the schools, which made school comparisons easy going in the past. However, the average DIV of Kishumundu Secondary School this year improved in an impressive way to 2,66. This is extraordinary good compared to the recent years, were it already hasn't been bad!


Congratulations to all students and their teachers involved in teaching and preparation!   The picture was taken in 2021, when they were in Form III.
