IB DP Student GR 11, Australia says “I appreciate the depth of knowledge that all my teachers have and their genuine interest in me and my learning. I play basketball and there are multiple courts. I’m in a band and love playing the drums, and the school has a good musical set up. Senior school music teacher, Ms. Sabiiti, is great. We are the only school in Uganda who travel to compete in the pan-African ISSEA tournaments. ISU is a truly great experience, and it’s a privilege and an honor to take part.

GR 12, Ugandan, notes “ISU helped me to contribute to the well-being of my community. I worked Malaika Babies’ Home, Fairway Primary School, Project Smile Uganda, and Tusome Kati Literacy Outreach. ISU produces compassionate global citizens – future leaders in global arenas. The rigors of the IB, a supportive ISU family, and the opportunity learn from people with different cultures, has enabled me to understand a range of perspectives and helped me to analyze and act on complex ethical issues in an authentic way.
