Are other schools available to expatriates in this city? Why did you choose this particular school?

yes, there are a few other options. We chose KISU because it mentioned a few things on the website that interested us, they kept answering my inquiries (ISU quit answering them), and upon arrival and tour, we were told everything we wanted to hear. - Nov 2019

Plenty of schools are available, especially at preschool age. This school is truly play-based, however. At these young ages, I wanted my kids to socialize and have fun and get used to a school environment but without flash cards or long circle times; rather lots of play and exploration and teacher attention. KCIP provides all that. - Sep 2018

Yes, there is actually a good variety of schools available at this post/Uganda. However, ISU is known as a very inclusive school, fully IB accredited (PYP, MYP, IB/AP & diploma course), and promotes learning diversity. It has a large and well functioning Optimal Learning Center that provides a variety of support services to children with special needs (all the way through high-school). As a result, my special needs child in middle school has been able to thrive at this school. - Jun 2018

It was new school when we enrolled our girls. The director is an American teacher who has years of experience teaching in Uganda and the States. She uses a combination of the British and the American curriculums. The cost was about 1/3 of the price of the other preschools, but the student/teacher ratio was much better (8:2 and 12:2 respectively). The school is very organized and the communication with parents is phenomenal. - Aug 2015
