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

There is a PTA, which mainly organizes social activities. There are parent members on the school councils, though these bodies are dysfunctional and widely ignored by the current administration, at least in secondary.

Seriously consider all other alternatives. Send you kids to the American School if you can afford it.
