Nyanga High School is a high school in Zimbabwe. The school falls under the category of church run schools called mission schools.

In the case of Nyanga High, the missionaries are Marist Brothers, a religious order founded by Saint Marcellin Champagnat in France in the 18th Century. Other Marist schools in Zimbabwe include Kutama College and Marist Brothers Dete. Nyanga has grown from strength to strength both academically and sportingly and over the years has overtaken the likes of Kutama College to become the biggest and most consistent academic powerhouse in Zimbabwe.
