Abstract

The government of Tanzania accords high priority to education as instrumental in achieving her Development Vision 2025 and other National and Global efforts. However, the education system in Tanzania has not developed substantially, particularly at the post primary level due to a number of schools’ internal and external factors. The problem statement addressed by this study was scant literature on success factors for performance among non-government secondary schools operate. The study was conducted in Dar es Salaam, Morogoro and Coast where 50 schools were taken. The respondents of the study were school owners, managers, teachers, parents, government and non-government officials; and students. Data collection instruments were interview checklists and questionnaires, complemented by documentary review and researcher’s observation. Data analysis was mainly qualitative supplemented by quantitative. Results show that the performance during the study period (2007-2011) was generally low. About 60% of students failed the form four national exams. A number of factors were attributed to successful school performance, namely, school factors, student factors and market or community factors. Service quality was found to be one of major determinants of school’s success. The study concluded that internal factors are more essential in determining school performance than external factors. KEY WORDS Success Factors, Academic Performance, Non-Governmental Schools, Business Environment, Resources, Service Quality Marketing.
