Inspiring Every Child to Love Learning

This statement informs everything that we do at Kampala Community International School (KCIS). We recognise that every child is unique and learns in different ways: our responsibility is to allow children to learn in an active and varied manner, whatever their learning style, and to facilitate a lifelong love of learning.

Our values-based school is a happy, caring, stimulating, engaging & challenging learning environment with highly effective teaching. We are positioned at the heart of our culturally diverse, international community, equipping all children with the necessary skills, competencies, attitudes and values to realise their diverse and distinctive potentials. We strive to bring out the best in every child, and to help them to take the next step in their lives (wherever that may be) with confidence, responsibility, conviction and consideration for others.

As an international primary school, we put international learning methods, resources and teaching practices into action both inside and outside the classroom. Every child deserves a school that is dedicated to inspiring and developing their abilities and confidence. Why not visit KCIS today and see for yourself?

What People Say About Us

We picked the school because of how diverse it is. They strike the balance between keeping the education high with a student body that better reflects the city (Ugandan and expat alike). They manage to create the inclusive atmosphere that we promote at home.
