What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)
In what town or city is this school located?
How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)
What grade levels are represented at this school?
How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
Awful. The building (pre-fab) is more than 15 years old and while there's lots of talk of a new school being built (has been for > 5 years), they are very far from moving from this 'shed'.
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?
Nothing formal exists.
How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?
Lots of parent organizations. The school is run by parents which is the BIG problem. The board is made up of parents woth random skills when it should actually be made up of people who are trained to handle accounting, contract, HR, etc. More than 17 employees are managed by this board.
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
DON'T DO IT. You don't want to regret it like we did...
