About UMSSN

Growing and delivering on a soaring reputation as a game changer school in Uganda.
We focus on a holistic instruction, personal growth, and ethical enrichment.

Uganda Martyrs’ Secondary School is a private yet affordable elementary school offering a stimulating curriculum and a supportive environment to ensure our students experience success every day. We focus on a holistic instruction, personal growth, and ethical enrichment. The result: students who are independent and confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic, responsible and compassionate.

We believe the elementary school years are the most formative of a child’s life. These early years can breed intellectual apathy or curiosity to seek knowledge.

A time marked by creative, social, and emotional development, and characterized by a lifelong love of learning and the joys of new, diverse friendships.

Uganda Martyrs’ Secondary School Namugongo was founded in 1967 to provide students with excellent academic programs and a nurturing environment with close student-teacher relationships. Secondary School prepares students or success both personally and academically.
