Uganda had three different standards of schools—First Class, Second Class, and Third Class. As expected the quality and cost of the schools varies greatly, depending on the class. Most of our children are in Third Class schools, but the goal is to get as many of them as possible into Second Class schools.
In both primary and secondary schools each academic term is three to four months long. An academic year consists of three terms. Classes run from Monday to Friday, although some students attend on Saturdays as well.
