Trīs īpašas iezīmes
- Pirmā IBDP skola Āfrikā - UWCEA started to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) in 1973, which makes it the oldest IBDP school in Africa. It was also instrumental in the creation and development of the IB Middle Years Programme in the 1980s, a curriculum that builds on the IB Programme.
- Āra Aktivitāšu Programma - Organised jointly across the two campuses, the Āra Aktivitāšu Programma is graded from Level 1 to Level 5 and includes very challenging mountaineering expeditions to Mount Hanang, Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro, as well as other easier off-road expeditions. These trips provide training for students in hiking, mountain biking, camping, teamwork and leadership skills. At each level, students are accompanied by staff who are qualified Wilderness First Aiders in order to ensure maximum safety on each trip.
- Atrašanās vieta - UWCEA pilsētiņas atrodas are located in the mountainous northeast of Tanzania, which is famous for its national parks. Students get to enjoy the cool and green of the mountains as well as the Indian Ocean coast in the historical Pangani town in Tanga region, where the school has property. Kihara house in Pangani is used for educational trips including Geography class trips to study the coastline and Individuals and Society class trips to understand the history of the people and the region. The house is also available for students and staff to use during school breaks.
UWCEA offers all the three IB programmes: Primary Years Programme (PYP) consisting of Early Childhood to P6 for students aged 3-10, Middle Years Programme (MYP) consisting of M1-M5 for students aged 11-15, and the IBDP for students aged 16-20. UWCEA also offers support to students with many different learning abilities. A specialist teacher concentrates on the development of students with special educational needs. ‘English as an Additional Language’ (EAL) specialists support students both in primary and secondary school.
UWCEA offers a variety of sporting activities including swimming, basketball, netball, rugby, football, and athletics. Student teams compete in various tournaments in the Kilimanjaro Region as members of the Northern Tanzania Athletics Associations (NTAA). The School also organises and hosts an annual Sports Weekend, which brings together nearly 1000 students from a dozen schools across the country to compete in team sports.
PYP students participate in clubs which typically include sports or service. All students in MYP and DP are required to participate in service and action or undertake a self-initiated project. The Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) projects vary from peer education programmes in the community to a bee farming project in West Kilimanjaro.

Mount Kilimanjaro is often the backdrop to many sports activities on both of UWCEA Moshi’s sports fields. The campus is spread across 40 acres of land and has its own horse stable. UWCEA Moshi is home to students aged 7 years and above.
From August 2019, UWCEA Arusha welcomes IBDP students to the newly built co-educational residence surrounded by a two-kilometre bush walking/running track.
Both UWCEA Moshi and Arusha have extensive grounds with indigenous trees and flowers. The campuses are home to numerous wildlife including colobus monkeys, hedgehogs and various birds. Both campuses have extraordinary views of freestanding mountains, which can be enjoyed for miles.
