This study was carried out in Tororo Municipality with the basic aim of establishing the influences that bear upon the establishment and sustenance of private schools within the municipality. 80th quantitative and qualitative methods of investigation were used in four selected schools. Total of 70 respondents were used including students, parents, teachers, and school administrators. Random sampling was used in most cases especially to select students and parents, though purposive sampling was used with regard to the school administrators. Two research instruments were used i.e. questionnaires and interview guides. The hypothesis was that "Private schools do not play role to the Ugandan education system". The findings were that private schools make an important contribution in the education system and in Tororo Municipality. Parents, teachers, and students have a positive attitude towards them. The private schools were profit-motivated, and lacked many of the facilities enshrined in the minimum standards for secondary schools set by Ministry of Education and Sports. Lastly, the study suggested recommendations useful for policy makers in the education sector, parents, students and implementers like teachers and education administrators on how to improve the pedagogical performance of private school
