Kampala - School Report Question and Answers

Please describe some of your child's/children's highlights and challenges during their time at this school.

My children loved SAAC experiences - traveling to other countries for exchanges/competitions with other schools. - Sep 2020

My son came into the school unprepared since I asked for summer homework and a reading list and we were told there was none. Then on the first day of school they tested on a book from the previous year. We were told my son could study cooking, business, theatre, and art until he graduated. By December of his first year they made him drop cooking since it began the year before, which we had not been told, and business. He was made to drop theatre after the first year because there was none for the older students. Several teachers left during the school year with no notice and students were taught the wrong book in one English course. He also was dropped from IB diploma to IB certificate because he had to drop Spanish due to the teacher having problems with all the male students because she preferred females students (she said so in class; the administration was aware of this but left my son and the other boys to deal with this on their own which resulted in poorer grades). My son's saving grace has been a small handful group of good friends, most of whom have already left, and one good art teacher who also has moved on. His new art teacher is currently on strike. The headmaster has been patient with some of our concerns. - Nov 2019
