I submitted the review 3-4 years back when my kids were in that school. They came back to Canada 3 years ago. I understand conditions in the school have changed including tution fee which has rose up substantially. So, do not rely on my earlier review. Its outdated.

Quick note to add that our kids have gone to Rainbow from Nursery and Kindergarten now through to Year 2 and Year 3. The Primary School is excellent. It's a very warm and friendly environment, with much on offer, from swimming to clubs and lots of cultural, literary, science, sports and other events throughout the year. Audrey Dralega is the head of the Primary School, and she and the primary staff are amazing. She knows every child's name, and literally had near-immediate information on what was happening for our kids as they transitioned from life in New York City. It was incredible. Access roads are improving (not sure that most get to the school by school-provided transportation because many parents like me do pick-ups and drop-offs). Can highly recommend it for these and many other reasons.
