English or History Teacher

7Hills International School

About the organization

Named for the seven hills on which Kampala is built, 7Hills International School was founded by a group of like-minded parents living in Uganda who were looking for a secondary school with the quality of teaching and care that they wanted for their children. They created 7Hills to provide an affordable international secondary education that develops the whole child – intellectually, emotionally and physically, and provides a safe and stimulating environment for them to learn. A school that inspires children to reach their full potential by teaching them to express themselves, think critically, solve problems, enjoy what they are learning, and become lifelong learners.

7Hills is a not for profit school registered as an NGO.

We currently have 115 students in 7 classes in secondary from year 7 to year 13.
