What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)
In what town or city is this school located?
How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)
British (definitely not international)
What grade levels are represented at this school?
How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)
The school is very far, out of the way, for students not living in voula or glyfada, and their bus option is overpriced and unorganized.
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
The campus is a beautiful campus, but the extra-curriculars are limited, if not involved with sports. Most times they are not encouraged as they "take too much time out of school work"
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?
There is an ESL program, but other than that they are very unhelpful with the whole process.
How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?
There are parent teacher meeting each quarter, but that it. They disbanded the PTA years ago.
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
Look elsewhere, the school is great for younger children and convenient if you live in the area, till 8th grade, but after that, I would reccomend some of the other IS in the area.
