What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)
St Paul American School
In what town or city is this school located?
How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)
More Korean/Local than American or international.
What grade levels are represented at this school?
How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)
Dorms, drive from home
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
Not up to standards of Norwegian schools. Probably not up to standard for American schools.
The school seems to be growing volume to take more Korean students.
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?
To me it looks like little is done to improve educational quality. But rather on volume. Pricing too high.
The educational quality is below Norwegian standards.
How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
As I see it, the price is too high in relation to the quality of teaching, and educational services. Not worth it.
The school focus seems to be on growing the number of Korean students. It might make the school more of a Korean school than American. Who approved the school for high school accreditation in Minnesota? How was the accreditation conducted?
