99% catch school buses that are widely distributed around the city

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

Facilities are good, although classrooms still use chalk boards and they dont have air conditioning. There is a 25m undercover pool and basketball courts, computer lab, library. There is an after school program where homework is done for 1 hour then selected activity for 1 hour. although this costs just as much as normal tuition

All teachers very friendly, but not much intereaction with the teachers as you dont see them until end of term.

NONE - there are no parent interactions at the school as the kids catch the bus each day.

Very few western kids at the school (can count on one hand), Best of the options available in the city. School curriculum is fine but heaily based on Indian culture.I am happy with it for a short time (couple of years).
