Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
Jun 13, 2017
What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)
Advanced Generations Schools

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)
What grade levels are represented at this school?
KG - Grade 9
How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)
By bus / private driver
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
Facilities are good. Swimming pool, auditorium, basketball, lan, library.. everything.
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?
We only stayed there for 1 year and we were so lucky on teachers. AGS is not actually that bad but we came to realize that its not actually an international school, its only called that because of the curriculum but its actually a saudi managed school for local kids under a whole Saudi admin. My kids have been greatly influenced with the local Arabic language.
How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?
Yes alot of those.
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
Don't be deceived when enrolling. Be aware that you are enrolling your kids in a Saudi School.. whole managment and kids are Saudis except for the Home room teachers, they are foreigners. Other than that kids won't be learning in an international community. They are allowed to speak Arabic all the time. My kids learned Arabic more than English! This is not a school for international kids. Its a saudi school for local Saudi kids but with international curriculum.
