Arlington Academy of Hope Uganda offers education at all levels right from grade one (primary section) to secondary level. The primary section comprises grade one to seven. Secondary section has both O and A level. We also support all our children to go for further studies after they complete secondary level. These join either tertiary institutions or universities.
What we have done....
We have been driven by a vision, mission, goal and objectives all these 17 years. Our mission was to help children in rural Uganda to reach their potential through education. Starting with only 78 in 2004 as a primary school, we currently have 490 children with a double stream from primary one to three due to the increasing demand from the community. What caused a difference between AJS and other public schools in a hot meal for lunch and break tea for lower classes. It was the only school that had a uniform for all students, teacher presence at 100% and pupil attendance at the same percentage. This makes AJS a special and model school in Bududa to date because it has maintained the standards.

Our education system is good quality effective Reliable
The AAH school provides a quality primary school education to 450 boys and girls from first through seventh grades at the Arlington Junior School (AJS). Children are taught a rigorous, traditional curriculum in English with emphasis on science, social studies, reading and math. The AAH education program encourages participation, debate, critical thinking and self-expression. AAH students provides students at its school with a morning snack and lunch each day. All students receive a uniform and school supplies. Attendance at AJS is close to 100% each day, compared to 70% in public schools.
Many of AJS students are sponsored by donors in the U.S. or elsewhere in the world. In addition to critical financial support, sponsors provide personal attention and moral encouragement through the exchange of letters and photos.
Because of the high standards implemented at the primary level, for 15 consecutive years now, 100% of AAH students have passed the Primary Leaving Exam, the national exam taken by all students in Uganda at the end of primary school. As a result, nearly every student has advanced to secondary school, a striking contrast to other schools in the region.
