Message from the Head Teacher​

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Karibu International School (KIS). We are a mixed boarding and day primary school with a thriving nursery provision all set in the beautiful semi-rural Iganga district.

I am proud of the well trained and committed staff we have here at KIS. Your child will be in very good hands. The curriculum on offer is designed to ensure that all our children get an exciting, challenging and well-rounded learning experience. Discipline is a fundamental part of what KIS is about. It is important that we work as a team to ensure that the high standards we have are maintained.

Most of our children are local but we have a few who come from far a field. Those that are not able to make the journey each day can take up the excellent boarding facilities we have on offer. The welfare of your child is important to us. Check out the welfare link to see some of the things in place to ensure that he/she is safe and comfortable while with us at KIS.

At Karibu International School we have on offer a range of extra-curricular activities for your child. We have in the past worked closely with sister schools in the region, which was and continues to be of great benefit to all the children and staff involved. We are excited about what we have planned for the future locally, nationally and internationally.

If you are looking for a school that you and your child can call home away from home, Karibu International School is the place. A lot of information is covered here on our site so please do look around and get to know us a little better.

Our team of helpful and friendly staff would like to hear from you. Visit our contact page for all the contact information you need. We will be happy to answer or address any issue/concerns you may have. We shall arrange a tour of the school so that together we can start mapping out the future of our nation through our children.

I am sure we are all aware that the growth of a nation lies in the hands of its young generation. Here at Karibu International School we are privileged to be in a position to contribute to this important undertaking, which is to provide a first-class education to all our children.
