Background

The school is named after Methodist Bishop Joseph C. Hartzell (1842-1929) who obtained the buildings at Old Umtali (name of Mutare in the colonial times) from Cecil John Rhodes and the British South Africa Company for use as a mission station. Joseph Hatzell was the Bishop of Africa for the American Methodist Episcopal Church.

The school was opened on 21 November 1898, with Rev Morris Ehnes as its head. It was recognized officially as having two names, the Umtali Public School and the Umtali Academy. In 1899 the school officially became a government school. The school was for Europeans only.
