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

This is not the best school in Kuwait but they are providing a good education to the majority of students. There has been some malicious gossip about this school in the past but the senior management team ARE well qualified (with genuine earned qualifications)and are trying to lead the school in a new direction which should give some good results '
