School buses and parents driving them in cars

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

Beautiful campus with lots of grass, trees, and flowers. Over 20 classrooms all opening up to lots of green. Science labs, media center, computer lab, library, gym, outside courts, two soccer fields, swimming pool, and two playgrounds make it a great place to learn and grow. Extra-curricular activities are geared for 6th graders through High School and they include soccer, basketball, indoor soccer, volleyball, softball, drama/theater, choir.

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?

The most important aspect is the native American teachers that give continuity to my child's American curriculum. The quality of the teachers are of the highest level. Plus, any new child is paired up with a team of friends to help them transition to the new school environment and schedule.

Parents participate in bake sales, walkathons, Friday night sports games, special dinners, breakfast meetings and other social events.

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

Considering the size of the city and horrendous traffic, don't let the school's distance scare you off. It's worth the drive!
