Parent's Review of Cambridge English School in Hawalli, Kuwait

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

Cambridge English School

In what town or city is this school located?

Hawalli

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

British

What grade levels are represented at this school?

kg-year11

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

Bus or car.

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

This would have to be the worst school to ever send your children to. They will learn nothing but bad manners, racism and rudeness to other people. I sent my child here for a year and couldn't believe how their education suffered.

There are NO resources, apart from ones that the teachers have bought out of their own money. Classrooms are small, filthy, bare and dull. There are a range of extra-curricular activities but only if you pay for them!

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?

Absolutely nothing! The teachers seem to try their best but even parents can see that all problems come from management.

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

Nothing.

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

I honestly wouldn't send my worst enemy to this school, unless you want them to learn nothing, apart from very bad manners, oh and how to swear in Arabic.
