Straight forward move from one school to another. The level of teaching in the school is superior to schools in the UK. The staff are all qualified and with good experience.
How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?
There are quite a few activites as the school is a Not for Profit school. I believe there are only 3 other schools in the region whom legitimately can hold the same title. Some other claim they are but that's not really the case.
Being Not for Profit means they have fund raisers where parents, teachers and students get involved together

Have a look around and compare others in the area. There are not many that can compare. This school was set up in 1974 and has good sized classes. Near enough to Dubai and easy to get to.
