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!

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.

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 an authorised International Baccalaureate (IB) Continuum School offering Primary Years Programme (PYP), 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. In addition to this, AIS also offers authorised Cambridge A Levels programme.

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

We inquire and aspire to be lifelong learners;

Acorns International arise and shine. We inspire and empower each other, to create a peaceful world.
With a strong foundation, we aim for the highest, build for tomorrow and strive for success.
