Chang’ombe Demonstration Primary School was established in 1959 as a Swahili-medium public primary school with registration number DS.03/02/005 under the former Dar es Salaam Teachers’ Training College (DTC). Its registration number was later changed to EM. 4058. Upon the establishment of the Dar es Salaam University College of Education (DUCE) in 2005, the school was made part of the College, thus becoming one of the college’s demonstration schools (others are secondary schools for O-level and A-level). In 2017, the school made a transition from being a Swahili-medium school to being an English-medium school. Since then, it has been operating in both Swahili Medium (for the classes enrolled before 2017) and English Medium (for classes comprising of pupils enrolled after the transition). So, currently the school has five English-Medium classes while the rest of the classes make use of Swahili Medium.
The school is meant to serve as a centre where teacher trainees at the College can learn practically through micro-teaching sessions. It serves the public and the DUCE community. Its current population comprises of 906 pupils and 34 teachers. The school uses the National Curriculum recommended by the Government.
