highly recommend not sending your innocent children here... No stability of staff.. it kept on changing every month.. not to mention that some can't be even called "teachers" . The administration treats the parents with a degree of disrespect that you would not believe... Lots of fake promises of changing and improving the messy school system including the administrators and the teachers... gossips and rumours all over the place .  Lots and lots of other comments .. yet i decided to move my kids to another school and end this farce... until an incident happened today with my daughter... she came back with a severe burn in her hand due to a dangerous experiment they did in the class with their genius teacher using fire, and alcohol without any safety precautions... They dealt with the issue super careless.. I called on the school mobile number nobody answered me.. I was shocked seeing them posting status and stories after 3 minutes of my call... I managed to get through all what I mentioned before but not putting my daughter in danger and being that careless about it... Shame on you brights staff.. very disappointing .. Worst experience ever

It is a total chaos. The administration is only interested in money. Very high teacher turnover. In last few months, there are 15 new teachers. Good teachers hardly stay over a few days. The school charges fees in USD and pays very low wages to the teachers in TLR. As a result we now have teachers who are unprofessional, even abusive. Has good infrastructure facilities, which are not being used. The school promised extra curricular activities in the beginning of the year but there haven't been any, even half of the school year is over. It has been a very bad experience with this school. I am not sure if any of the other so called international schools in Istanbul are any better.
