What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
I was happy at first, my daughter was very happy. It's small, friendly staff, nice children and a decent education. What I notices is that there is no staff retention. I liked my daughter's teachers last year, but neither of them are back this year, actually, there are hardly any familiar faces in the teaching staff.
It also seems that what was part of the school is now an apartment. Not sure what that means for the school.
It's a good thing we're heading back to the UK.
