Heritage International School | HIS opened in 1994 in Uganda, sponsored by missionaries of five different Christian missions, with the aim of providing a Christ-centered education for all children, regardless of their religious, social, or economic background. Our aim continues to be to provide a high-quality education that prepares our young people for a life of faith and service.

The student learning expectations are modeled after the growth of Jesus Christ described in Luke 2:52: “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.” Based on this, we have structured our student goals in the same four categories: wisdom (academic), stature (physical), favor with God (spiritual), and favor with man (social).
