Parent's Review of British International School of Jeddah in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

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

British International School of Jeddah

In what town or city is this school located?

Jeddah

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

International/British

What grade levels are represented at this school?

Nursery - IB

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Private drivers or compound buses. There is a large compound next door, so those students walk.

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

The facilities are great. Extra-curricular activities are somewhat limited, but what is available is very well run. There is a shaded swimming pool, heated in the cooler months, indoor sports facilities, climbing wall, squash courts, etc.

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?

Most teachers are quite accommodating of new students, and their various needs, although if English is not your first language it can be a problem in the higher grades.

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

There are not really any social activities for parents through the school, but as most people live on compounds in Jeddah, the large compounds tend to be the hub of activity.

There really aren't any parent-teacher organizations, and although individual teachers are quite willing to talk about your particular child, there doesn't seem to be any real desire for parent input. At the moment that isn't a huge problem as it is a very well run school.

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

This is a great school. I would strongly recommend it. If your child has any learning difficulties I would suggest you have a report from a Educational Psychologist with recommendations before you arrive, and as long as the difficulties aren't severe, the school does have a very positive attitude about accommodating such students. I would specifically ask that my child be placed with a teacher who is geared towards this however, as some are definitely better than others.
