From my experience, as a student that has been here since preschool, and until now, ive had many memories, pros, and cons in the school. Pros: its a very good school in terms of academics, lots of activities and competitions and especially in the new building which is bigger, bathrooms are clean and offers swimming classes. the teachers are nice and we do alot of work in school, we study pretty much most of the time! Cons: after covid, physical education and sports have decreased alot, (but soon were having sports day), not all teachers speak fluently english, some of them do and some dont, and there isnt a very wide range of subjects for IB students like for example (phsycology, computer science and so on.) but it offers its really good igcse teaching skills.

As a student that has been here since preschool i must say there was various improvements and some draw backs throughout the years . Pros better facilities great academics although not a large selection of subjects for the ib students but for igcse students its the best in the city .after covid sports has been almost non-existent but have been seeing some efforts in improvement . teachers are generally quit good although there is a few not so great ones but generally they are excellent. The students are usually under pressure due to the school prioritizing fast pace studying technique which for new student might take a few months to get used to the large work load and pressure although it teaches students time management skills which is quit helpful for future ib and university students .

My son goes to this school. Very poor sanity. Very poor facilities. Teachers are bad. We are paying so much for nothing. Very bad administration.

My daughter goes there and we are very satisfied, it is little over priced plus taxes. But I think one of the best so far. No one is perfect so they might have little flaws too but that would be 10 percent of the show. My daughter once got bullied and we complained and it was taken care with great manners that the bully girl and my daughter are friends. The horrible experience I had was once my daughter went to school and I received a message that she is absent and me and my wife both are working parents had heart attack and started calling to school but luckily we had teachers number and she confirmed us about her. So it was one mistake we experienced on last 4 years. My daughter never wants to leave the school

• Pros• yeah, a pretty good school in my opinion. well, i’ve been it for a good two years, and going for the third. my experience was awesome every time, the teachers, the students, and everyone. most reviews are students being salty because they don’t want school to come back, just don’t listen to them. its what i would call a good school, and yes. it is very easy to make friends and meet new people, as most of the time, they are very friendly. you can even get close to the teachers, too. i’ve had a really good time of my 3’rd and 4th grade, and im looking forward to the fifth. i, as in almost everyone. doesn’t enjoy school, but meeting new friends, the activities, and the amazing teachers is what keep me going. the people have overall have made me a better person, and i hope that any newcomers will enjoy the school too. •cons.• yeah, everything in life has to have itty bitty problems, right? number one, the foreign language problems. so far, in my experience and from what i’ve seen is that there are not many foreign languages you can learn. (arabic, french, english only.) i feel that the schools should add maybe a few more languages that the students should choose to learn, or maybe even an after school club for another language would be cool. some examples of languages i think would be suitable are..: german, japeneese/korean/chineese. (or any south-east asian language would be great. maybe even thailand!) spanish, italian, and maaaaaybe russian? those are pretty wide spread languages soo. how this can work: during the beginning of the first semester (doesn’t apply to school clubs.), the students have a poll to choose what language they want to learn. if for example, ten people chose korean, there would be a class of korean that the students go to instead of French! for after school clubs: it isn’t quite hard honestly, its quite self explanatory. the after school clubs: okay, so i only have one problem. uhh, soccer club is only for boys? c’mon! i think it would be better if the school let the girls play soccer, too. okay! thats it, at the end, its a ten/ten school, so if you are interested in enlisting your child in the school, sure go for it! (maybe you shouldn’t take advice from a 10 year old but—)

There’s no sanitation, the school doesn’t pay water or electricity bills so they go every hour or so, there are never tissues in the bathrooms except if we have visitors. Most of the teachers there don’t even know how to speak English properly. They don’t treat the students correctly. The teachers shout at the students because the asked them to go to the bathroom, how disrespectful. I could go on and on about how bad of a school this is, but I have other things to do. Don’t recommend to go there at all. I would love to give it 0 stars but I can’t.
