About Shaaban Robert Secondary School

Consequently the Dar es Salaam Secondary Education Society was formed on 21st January 1963 with the express purpose of establishing a secondary school and this resulted in the establishment of Shaaban Robert Secondary School on 14th May 1963.
The school is owned and run by the Dar es Salaam Secondary Education Society. The Society has a board of governors consisting of eminent persons from various walks of life. The Chairman of the Board of Governors is Sir Jayanthilal K. Chande.
