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

The school has several large residential facilities all on one enclosed street that were renovated for classrooms. The school has a great computer lab, library, and music room. There are no cafeteria facilities and students must bring lunch from home or purchase meals from a local vendors who caters to campus. There are several extra curricular programs available - music, basketball, dance, soccer, and various academic clubs.

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?

The classes are all taught in English, but the are also required classes for the national languages to help with literacy for national students attending the school. The faculty members are engaged with their students and frequently attend family functions with parents and students.

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

There is no PTA program, but the expat community stays very engaged as a whole, in spite of cultural restrictions placed upon foreigners.

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

Plan early and ask questions about available spaces. Last year there were not many openings. The school calendar is similar to that we had in the States. For Afghanistan, the school offers many resources, but not all High School Elective classes are offered every year - if you have needs for AP classes or specific math or sciences for college placement, check with the school in advance.
