Rainbow International School is an international school for infant, junior and secondary education in the Kampala district of Uganda.

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.


International Talent Show[edit]

This talent show was created by Rainbow, in which students from nearby international schools take part. There are three categories: vocal, instrumental and dance, and usually takes place in or around March of the current academic year. (Greenhill Academy is not an international School)
