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

mostly bus, cars
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
Great, constant updating of the facilities, with distinctive separate areas for each section.
Multiple extracurricular activities, from sports, to dancing to music to origami and carpentry among many others
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?
There are no official programs, but the staff is always willing to help. They have special services available to those who need it and go out of their way to help kids and their families adjust. When leaving, they
do help in many ways.
They even have special programs for children who don't speak either English or Spanish, the school's two official languages to help them adjust and receive a good education.
How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?
The PTO has come through in the last four or so years. It was nonexistent before, probably when the other report was made, but now there are quite a few activities for families to join the AC community. When new families come, there are also lots of activities specially planned for them, not only school related, but nearby tourist attractions...
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
I love it. I have my two boys and am amazed at the academic standards. My oldest one is not quite studious, yet he manages to excel in many areas, even compared to other schools worldwide. When compared to other kids his age in other schools around the world, he is significantly more advanced. I think that says a lot. I like the special services and the close knit feel of the parent teacher relations
