The Rainbow International School was established in September 1991 as a primary school with 29 children. In September 1995, the school moved to its present 9-acre (36,000 m2) site with newly constructed purpose-built classrooms and administration block and playing fields. The school is in the Kampala district. It is owned by the Midland Group of companies.
The Rainbow School has been helped and fund-raised for by the Run4Unity association and the Focolaré.
