Located in the village of Bumwalukani, our Arlington Junior School (AJS) provides a quality primary school education to 350 children. Our rigorous, traditional curriculum in English (Uganda’s official language) emphasizes science, social studies, reading, and math. Our Ugandan teachers encourage participation, debate, critical thinking, and self-expression. In addition, students learn music, dance, drama, agriculture, domestic care, ecology, sports, and handicrafts.

AJS delivers not only hope for a better future but also results. For 13 consecutive years, 100% of AJS students have passed the Primary Leaving Exam (PLE), the national exam taken by all Ugandan students at the end of primary school. As a result, every AJS student has advanced to secondary school – a striking contrast to other local children.

AJS is truly transformative in the community - not just for the students, but for the community as a whole.
