The Aga Khan Mzizima Secondary School, commonly referred to as Mzizima, is a co-educational non-government school in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. It was founded in 1967 and is operated by the Aga Khan Education Services, an agency of the Aga Khan Development Network. The school's motto is "Better Always Better" and it is one of Tanzania's leading non-government schools. For three consecutive academic years (2000-2001, 2001-2002 and 2002-2003), Mzizima was awarded the Certificate of Excellence (First Grade) from the Minister of Education and Culture and Inspectorate for exemplary performance at the Tanzanian National Examinations.

It adopted the International Baccalaureate system before the 2005/2006 academic year began. Aga Khan Mzizima has been successful on the sports front, winning numerous tournaments, especially in basketball and football. The school is planning to hold a fiesta on 27 May 2013, and will also hold a 'spike and dunk' tournament for basketball and probably volleyball on the same day.
