Many studies have been done on the effectiveness of motivation on employees’ performance, however this study investigated the effectiveness of motivation on employees’ performance in Glorious Academy, a private school in Zanzibar. A descriptive research design involving quantitative and qualitative approaches was used to investigate the phenomena. A survey was carried out with 162 respondents including teaching and non-teaching staff of Glorious Academy one of the private schools in Zanzibar. Questionnaires method was used to gather data and analysis was done using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) and content analysis for qualitative aspect. The findings revealed strong positive relationship between intrinsic motivation and the employees’ performance as the strength of correlation was 0.751. Also there was a moderate positive relationship between the extrinsic motivation and the employees’ performance as shown by the strength of correlation, which was 0.405. Then there was weak positive relationship between challenges facing motivation and the employees’ performance, which implies that, challenges may have impact on the performance of the employees depending on the nature of the challenge. From the findings, it was concluded that, at Glorious academy the level of intrinsic motivation is higher than extrinsic motivation indicating that the employers have not based much on motivating their employees. Also it was concluded that, since employees are intrinsically motivated, impacts of challenges to their performance seem to be minimal. It was then recommended that, the management of Glorious academy representing other privates schools in Zanzibar should review their motivation policy in order to increase the employees performance.
