The facilities are good. The school has an inviting atmosphere. Class sizes are small. The school is now in its 3rd year and seems more established.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

The curriculum is international (the three IB programmes are offered). The curriculum seems child-centered and more focused this year. There is an EAL programme but nothing for Learning Needs. A range of subjects is offered including French and Spanish.

There is a PTA and events are organized by the school and the PTA. The school has an initiative this year to improve PR and it is evident. The Registrar is a lovely person.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

Contact the school, visit the website if outside the country. Make a visit to see the school. There is a new principal this year and there have been many changes and improvements. Our children are very happy at the school and enjoying their learning, and are obviously becoming more well-rounded and internationally minded. We are very pleased indeed!
