Taibah International School Secondary is located in Bwebajja 14 km from Kampala and 16 km from Entebbe International Airport.
TISS offers both the Ugandan (UNEB) examinations system working towards O’ and A’ Level qualifications and the Cambridge International curriculum (CIE). In addition, our students’ work is extended to encourage them to develop skills in management, leadership, entrepreneurship and other vocational professions.
Our primary job is to ensure that each student achieves to the very best of his or her academic ability. Students are enabled to develop life and work skills through our school programmes. TIS has energetic, enthusiastic and well-qualified teachers who are seriously committed to using a variety of teaching methods and styles to motivate and engage the students.
The school curriculum includes academic and vocational subjects in order to broaden the knowledge of our youngsters. Physical Education (PE) is compulsory for all. A’ Level students attend classes in Literacy and Numeracy to improve writing and numeric skills respectively. At O’ Level the curriculum is extended to include Drama and Music, which improve students’ communication skills and appreciation of the Arts.
Well-equipped and resourced classrooms and an improving school library support academic work. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is employed across the curriculum in order to ensure that students achieve a high standard of computer literacy in different subjects. Students are expected to conduct research and present work using the networked computer room that has very good Internet facilities.
Formal Career Education courses are offered to all students in examinations classes to supplement the individual guidance given to them by their Form Tutors. A similar course is also offered to Senior 3 students before choosing their examinations options. We are one of the very few schools that offer vocational subjects. These very popular subjects include: Technical Drawing, Wood Work, Home Economics and Textiles.
Our older students are given an opportunity to experience the world of work through our Work Experience programme. Students spend a period of two weeks working formally and they are then assessed by both teachers and employers. Indeed, the benefits gained by students from Work Experience are invaluable. Please advise us if you have any possible placements for students at your workplace.
