Parent's Review of American School of Warsaw in Konstancin, Poland

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

American School of Warsaw

In what town or city is this school located?

Konstancin

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

International

What grade levels are represented at this school?

Pre-K - 12

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?

The facilities are brand new this year as we have just built a brand new school for all grades pre-K - 12. Almost all extra-curricular activities normally found in an American school are available (except American football), plus many other activities unique to Europe. We have terrific arts and music and drama activities, soccer, baseball, volleyball, track, etc. We also field teams in many areas to attend tournaments in other countries. We have speech and debate, honor choir and honor jazz competitions, and much more.

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?

Our children came to American School of Warsaw from schools in the Boston, Mass. area and they have never looked back. Since the curriculum is based on the American model, the move to Poland has not been difficult. In fact, due to the small class size and much more contact with teachers, it has been very enriching for our kids. I believe they would have a more difficult time readjusting to American schools.

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

There are many activities available for parents, from helping parents learn about Warsaw and the school and the city in general to PTO activities in each grade level. The PTO is very active with each grade and age appropriate activities, and the PTO also sponsors several school wide activities each year, such as a fall Barbecue, a Spring Fair, U. N. Day and many more events too numerous to mention.

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

My best advice to is be proactive in learning about all the resources that the school has to offer. It's a school of approximately 800 students, but that covers 13 grade levels, so there are many teachers, aides, parents and counselors in the school to help with each student's needs. Many times new parents from countries without American curriculums need special assistance and this help is available.

Sure this school may have a more or less new environment but Its already slowly breaking and after 11 years they already need a new building. Thats because the school is growing massively. Students don't get enough attention considering in one grade there is about 80 students and rising. The system isn't great for learning. It would be better if they had IB from Pre k to 12 Grade instead of 11th to 12th grade. The school needs to make some improvements but overall fairly well. Space is never a problem either since the area is huge.
