Secondary schools:
From the age of 12 to 18. This level is categorized into O-level (a cycle of 4 years) and A-level (A cycle of 2 years). Secondary schools are both private and government owned. International schools also offer international curricula – eg the IB system.

8.2. MONTESSORI SCHOOLS
Schools using the Montessori method
Montessori education follows the principles of an Italian physician, Maria Montessori. She believed in human development through freedom of choice within limits, in a discovery- type situation rather than by formal instruction, in mixed age classrooms. This method only works really well with a Montessori trained teacher. Although new to Uganda, Montessori primary schools have been established for many years in Europe and America.
