RISU history:

Rainbow International School Uganda (RISU) begun in September 1991 as a primary school with 29 children. In September 1995 the school moved to a 9 – acre site with purpose built classrooms to which an administration block was recently added.


Community is central to all we do. Students from as young as 2 to 18 years from the heart of our community, with over 60 different nationalities and an abundance of faith and religions, Rainbow is truly a multi cultural and diverse setting. We celebrate internationalism which is the core of all we do.

Rainbow is warm, vibrant and caring community that works together to ensure students success. We appreciate the challenges of educating toddlers to adolescents and believe in a combination of firm discipline and gentle nurturing that allows every student to develop a sense of balance that supports them to take on challenges that they will encounter in their future. The academic life in Rainbow is guided by two key principles; to offer a well rounded and inclusive to all curriculum that provokes and challenges every individual, and to guide our learners to achieve the best possible examination results.

The range of activities on offer at Rainbow is vast. Everyone is encouraged to take part in team building and leadership courses that are designed to nurture understanding of the communities in which all the students live.
