Welcome to Acorns International School (AIS), a school now well into its second decade of bringing exemplary, world-class education to Uganda. AIS has journeyed, from being a preschool in 1996, to a primary school in 2012, to the existing sprawling 5-acre campus that nurtures the holistic and balanced development of each child, be it an 18-month- old or an 18- year-old!

The trajectory from being The Acorns School to Acorns International School (AIS) has been an exhilarating one. Today, AIS is the most affordable school in Uganda, that provides renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) continuum programmes (Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme* and Diploma Programme*) as well as A Levels.

Located along the Northern Bypass, just off Bukoto – Kisaasi Road, AIS is a truly international school, with a diverse student population, representing more than 50 nationalities, and a staff population to match. An accredited Primary Years Programme (PYP) school, AIS is an authorised IB Primary World School and also authorised Cambridge A Levels School. AIS is pursuing authorisation, with its candidate* status for the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP). IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to unparalleled quality and globally-acclaimed education, a trait you will see reflected at AIS.

*Only schools authorised by the IB Organisation can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorisation will be granted.

To inspire and empower each other to achieve our personal best.

To provide education in an inquiry-based environment that nurtures holistic and balanced lifelong learners, who will create a better and more peaceful world.

AIS sought a symbol to represent itself within the local community. It was important that the symbol reflected the school’s identity, beliefs, values and was easily recognizable. There are three important features of the AIS logo:

  • The name of the school and its representation: Acorn representing core values
  • The structure and shape of the logo: Pyramid
  • The colours: Blue and Gold
