Parent's Review of Lucaya International in Freeport, Bahamas

Submitted by Lepidoptera

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

Lucaya International

In what town or city is this school located?

Freeport

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

International

What grade levels are represented at this school?

Pre-K to IB

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

Almost everyone drops off their children - the car park can be a total nightmare.

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

The facilities are basic but functional, there is a art room, sport fields, science labs and special areas for Pre-K & K and IB. Plenty of space I guess. There are extra-curricular clubs but it depends on the the teachers can/decide to offer.

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?

Depends on the individual subject teacher, some will go out of their way to do extra stuff and others will not - there doesn't seem to be an school wide approach.

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

There is a PTA with lots of socials - coffee morning and the like.

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

It is a nice school, if you get the teachers on your side they will help you out. It has the smallest teacher to student ratio and the only school on the island that provides IGCSE & IB. BGCSE offered at the other schools is not rigorous enough for university entrance in Europe but ok for US (lower to middle tier universities) if you have children of that age.
