Are you really talking about the same school I'm thinking about? Because that school left a diabetic student to die twice because they maintain children cannot get diabetes, it's an old person disease.

Since Al-Rowad moved to the new school they appear to be better. Why does Manarat not have any website??? It is very strange for an international school with such fees. It is not easy to contact them, and school fees information requires a personal visit.
