Kampala International School Uganda adapts the English National Curriculum for the Primary School and until Year 9 in the Secondary School. After that, our students study for the internationally recognized Cambridge IGCSE (examined in Y11) and IB Diploma (examined in Y13). The curriculum ensures that rigorous educational standards are maintained and that progression of educational experience is monitored. The IB Diploma is generally regarded as the university entrance programme of choice often preferred above national requirements. The curriculum has been adapted to reflect the international diversity of our school community and its location in Uganda.
