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

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

British

Car and a lot of kids take the bus

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

Very poor facilities even though it is a new school. Very few extra-curricular activities especially for the primary school children.

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?

Nothing! There are no programs to prepare a child for repatriation.

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

There are no social activites available for the parents or children outside the school hours. They have a PTA but it is a waste of time as no one shows up because the headmistress doesn't want to contribute any of her extra time outside the normal school hours.

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

Don't do it! We are trying to get our child into another school ASAP.
