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?
N/A - we chose the school becasue of the promise of an international program. This did not happen.
How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?
None - to be avoided anyway. The school has a number of subsidised students whose parents don't attend anything. The other parents complain all the time unil they leave.
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
Go elsewhere. They will promise you anything to get your check, but then "forget". Don't sign up for automatic payment - they adjust your bill so you pay more than you agreed.
