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?

School have been very helpful in supporting our 2 children on our arrival. Extra english lessons have been organized for them, but the most important was that teachers took significant care to help our children to integrate socialy with other children and teachers and build good realtionships. The children are encouraged to think globally and to develop intercultural appreciation through the study of other countries, cultures, languages and peoples. Before our children was in Austria and we have recently move to International School in Switzerland and now we realize even more how MEF was clearly outperforming the other school. Our children truly miss the MEF. TEachers have been very helpfull to us also on relocation to Switzerland by encouriging our children and providing us with additional information to schoose the school in our new location. Greatz farewell party for our children was organized in the school on their own initiative.

We strongly recommand MEF school in Izmir and regret that our children had to relocate after 3 years. Today after 3 months we keep keep benchmarking our new school with MEF and continously MEF outperforms in all aspects
