Kampala Community International School
Kampala Community International School is a unique school, specialising in hands on active learning. Our school motto - Inspiring Every Child to Love Learning - underpins everything we do at school. We are a single entry school and classes are small with a maximum of 18 students. We have a very diverse student body, with over 33 nationalities from 4 continents, and teachers from Europe, USA, India, Australia and Uganda. We use the English National Curriculum and believe in bringing learning to life as much as possible. Our students are inquirers, they enjoy researching and asking lots of questions, they challenge themselves to find out why and frequently dig deeper for more understanding.
Our school was set up to provide an affordable international education option in a city where high international school fees makes such an education prohibitive to many families. All our parents are striving towards a more enjoyable and active education experience for their children. Although we are a small school we have already made a huge impact in Kampala. We attend and host events with the leading international schools in Kampala; we play in an international schools' sports league; we stage productions and concerts; have a school choir and offer individual music lessons; we also have a broad after school clubs programme. We have an active Parent Committee and a great Student Council and a library with nearly 3,000 books.
The school has a real 'can-do' feel about it - everyone has the opportunity to get involved with so many aspects of school life which creates a great team spirit, and makes it a wonderful place to both learn and work.
