I have just moved to Oman and live quite close to TLC school. I went and had a look when I arrived here and the school, to be honest, is a joke. The teachers seemed friendly but they have absolutely NOTHING in terms of facilities. And the fees are ridiculous - if they reduced their fees to a third of what they are currently charging then perhaps I would consider it. There are many other places in Muscat that are far better. My children are now at ABA.
A reader replied recently with:
I agree with the previous report. It is so obvious that staff of the school have written this report. My child used to go to TLC which I describe as a building 'trying' to be a school. If people cannot see that they are depriving their children of a 'proper' and 'normal' education by sending them here then they are blind. I have seen with my own eyes how lacking the facilities, equipment and material are in this school and would NEVER bring my child back. Nice teachers, but at Primary Level that is simply not enough.

I am moving from acanada to muscat in July for work and looking for short term rental in an expat area. Any tips, website on how to find a place before moving.
People don't share. I would try the wave, Muscat. New apartments by the beach and Marina.

Private,furnished, 1 bedrrom,between 300-450/ month, in a good area close to the beach is preferable, short term possibility of long term. I am open to shared depends on where and who. I am not familiar with accommodations and locations in muscat so the above can be subject to change based on what is available, etc. thanks:)
