What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
I would strongly advise against it. While there are several amazing teachers who somehow manage to work at this school, it is under resourced and mismanaged by a dishonest administration. More than half of the staff has left two years in a row, several of whom have decided to break contracts just to get out of the school. As always, the kids are great, but there are other, better options available in Xi'an.
