Parent's Review of Atlantic International School in Moscow, Russia

Submitted by babazoo

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

Atlantic International School

In what town or city is this school located?

Moscow

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

Turkish-run school with international students

What grade levels are represented at this school?

Kindergarten to year 12

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Most arrive by metro or private car.

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

In regards to the secondary campus in Dubrovka campus, the facilities are very limited. There are no extra-curricular activities at this school.

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?

We wanted our children to be taught by western trained English speaking teachers. There are some, but Turkish administration appears to have decided that hiring Russian teachers is better and cheaper. The English speaking teachers do the best they can under the circumstances. Children speak Turkish or Russian in the corridors and there appears to be no effort in establishing English as the common language. Resources are extremely limited. Classrooms cramped.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

There are no social activities for parents. There is no parent-teacher organisation. Turkish administration has limited contact with us. There are many offices with Turkish businessmen in them within the school, but they don't speak English or communicate.

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

I am very worried about this school. Is it a school? I'm not sure. It seems so strange that this is a school run by Turkish businessmen who have been given offices in a tiny school, when there are not enough classrooms for the children. I am getting the feeling that they have employed a few western teachers to give it a look of being credible, but they are hiding behind them. Everything is done so cheaply - and so is the canteen food. My children complain of the boring food! Not enough resources for students! ICT VERY tiny. I am paying good money - for what?
