Kampala - School Report Question and Answers

What services are available for students with physical disabilities at this school? Please describe your experience with these services, if applicable.

The school is built on a hill with multiple 'levels' involving stairs. Recently, a long ramp was built in the secondary school for wheelchair access. In the primary school, a student in a wheelchair was accommodated in 2019/2020 but they had to make several modifications and there were still unresolved hurdles that needed work. It was a learning curve for the school and I believe they did their best to make permanent changes to the infrastructure to allow for wheelchair access in the future. - Sep 2020

Unknown, but there are ramps but no elevators on campus. - Nov 2019

Different students with physical disabilities are part of mainstream education at ISU. however, the school is located on a hill side, as such there are many steps between the different levels at which classrooms, sport facilities are located, and as a result the school is currently not very wheelchair friendly. However, grade 9 students designed wheelchair ramps this year as part of a maths/design project, and their design was approved by the school board for construction of wheelchair ramps to start in the coming months. - Jun 2018
