Kampala - School Report Question and Answers
What personal or academic counseling resources are available at this school? Is there a dedicated college counselor at the school? Is he/she familiar with universities worldwide?
Personal counseling was not adequate when my children were there; there was one counselor for the entire middle and high school, which is (a) not enough staff and (b) two different age groups that can have different counseling needs. I'm told there was a shift after we left and the Dean of Students was going to take on more of a counseling role to support the full-time counselor. College counseling was being covered by the biology teacher while we were there. While she tried her best, she was learning about college counseling on the job and while juggling a full-time teaching schedule so there was a major weakness in this service. We were given incorrect or incomplete information for many things and we ended up doing our own research for colleges. - Sep 2020
There is a reasonably new counselour at the school as of last year. I do not know what she knows about other worldwide universities but the school did a college "roundup" of sorts. - Nov 2019
yes, counseling at all levels (junior/senior school) is available, and much is invested in preparing high school students for their next step and move onto college and university. - Jun 2018
