What our leaders say

Path to Success International School, or PtS, aims at making affordable, quality bilingual education available to children both Rwandan and expatriate. Classes are taught in English and French. The PTS focus is for each student to develop their full academic, social, emotional and spiritual potential.
Salila Machiels
The curriculum provides an academically balanced educational program with a focus on each student achieving their holistic personal best in the vital skills associated with literacy and numeracy. We recognize all students are differently able and as such our school caters as well for academically strong students as for students who have specific learning needs.
Gabriel Opare
Our program aims to help students Communicate, Read and Write in French to become excellent bilinguals. Beyond French classes, we provide further language learning through a wide panel of classes such as Bible Study, Sports, Music, Art and Drama all taught by francophone teachers.
