The lush thirty-three acre ISU campus is a garden for many indigenous plants and bird-life. The purpose-built campus is on the outskirts of the capital city of Kampala in a rural setting and about 5 kilometers from Lake Victoria. It includes four fully equipped science laboratories, three computer laboratories with access to the Internet and wireless connectivity campus-wide, a state-of-the art Science Centre, a library of 20,000 volumes, dining hall, 2 sports fields, sports hall, track, 2 swimming pools, 4 tennis courts, golf practice range and separate facilities for Early Childhood education.


The Library with over 20.000 volumes, is a school community effort where the librarian, teachers and students jointly create and maintain a learning environment with access to a wide- range of print and non-print information resources. The mission of the library is to foster in our students a love of reading and the development of life-long learning abilities in information discovery. The collection of library resources is done in collaboration with the teachers in order to directly support and enhance the school’s curriculum requirements and the PYP, MYP and DP programs. Additionally, in consultation with teachers, and through guided inquiry, library and research skills are taught within the context of classroom projects. Finally, in all it’s resources and programs we seek to reflect the international and multi-cultural nature of the ISU community. Click here to learn more...


The school has a fleet of buses that serve fifteen routes and transport students to and from school. At the end of the school day there are three services, one at 3.10pm (2:20pm on a Wednesday) at the end of the regular school day and another at 4.10pm for students who stay on for after-school activities and a limited bus service at 5:00pm for those who take part in extended activities or sports.

Each bus driver is accompanied by a bus monitor who is responsible for student behavior and welfare and is in communication with the school through a mobile telephone and radio. All buses are equipped with seat belts, cameras and radios.
