In what town or city is this school located?


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

International American School of Warsaw

What grade levels are represented at this school?


How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

There is a school bus provided that routes all around Warsaw.

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

This school is excellent. My child is very happy. My boy is on the football team, is always occupied with not only education, but sports, projects and trips.

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?

This schools limited size of classes allows the teachers to concentrate on a particular child. Almost like a personal tutor at times, which is a huge help. My child is one that needs attention in order to progress. That is being fulfilled here.

The cultural transition is very smooth for him. Being a foreigner he met other people he speak English, but also peers who speak both. Simultaneously allowing him to blend and understand the world around him.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

Yes there are. After main exam periods, parents are invited to discuss the progress of their children in detail. Moreover, if you are a parent that travels a lot and you can't make the school parent teacher deadlines, teachers are always willing to see you in their free time at the school. As far as I know, there were also parent teacher inductions so that you can meet the responsible caretakers.

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

If you want your child to be fluent in 2-3 languages, make Polish, English and international friends- and have a highest probability in the country to enter world renown universities... this is the place.
