Why 7 Hills International Secondary School-Kampala?

For this forward-looking International secondary school, the  International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) that is specifically designed for 11-16 year-old students was adopted. The IMYC is a continuation of the very popular and successful IPC, (International Primary Curriculum), which is offered by many International Primary schools in Kampala. The curriculum framework provides a fun and challenging environment for teenagers to help develop knowledge, critical thinking and strong moral values. To further ensure that our students  meet all the necessary academic requirements, we align the Common Core Standards (CCSS) in each subject. These content standards are designed to encourage the highest achievement of every student, by defining the knowledge, concepts, and skills that students should acquire at each grade level.
7 Hills International Secondary School-Kampala is the first school in Uganda to offer the IMYC, along with CCSS to provide an equally rigorous Academic, Fine Arts, and Sports program.

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program will be offered for Years 12 and  13 in 2021.

The International Middle Years Curriculum

The IMYC is a full curriculum designed to support the academic and personal needs of the secondary school learner at this crucial age. The latest research has shown consistently that the maturing adolescent brain needs very specific support and students’ personal development cannot be neglected; but not at the cost of the academic rigour and depth of learning required! That is what I enjoy about the IMYC, it is not either or, but both, we owe that to our students!”
