Teaching and Learning

We hope all our students leave CCIS with a great love of learning! Our teachers teach interactive lessons which active all learning styles and regularly attend professional development trainings to stay up to date with best practices.

While studying at CCIS, students learn the primary subjects as well as Kiswahili, the national language of Tanzania, Music, and Sport. In upper primary students also study religious education. All students have an opportunity to participate in electives of their choice, check out books from the well-stocked school library, and participate in daily devotions and meditation time.
