The school is really good. The teachers are really friendly and very fun. Lovely classes and a great experience for me. Excited to come back and see my friends.

From years R-8, this school is fine. But after that, it's time to take your qualifications seriously and move your final years of education elsewhere. In the nine years that I was here, the education superseded the schools in England. Some teachers lack interpersonal skills and act like machines. I still remember all of their names and the dumb things they did, like give me a detention for mistakes they've made but were unwilling to admit it. However, returning to England made me realise how much worse it is there. I was in all the middle sets at BISR, but when I returned home I was suddenly the smartest kid in the year. This school takes bullying a lot more seriously than other schools, except when the teachers do it themselves. From my experience, they handled bullying. But false accusations are also taken seriously, some students in my time picked up on it and would do this to others. There's also students and teachers who shouldn't be here; a handful of lowlives from around the world attend this school; British, Arabic, Australian, whatever. You're forced to take part in sports days and swimming galas. Waste of a school day, why shouldn't I be absent from these? I'd have been more productive staying at home.

My son got beaten up on the third day of school by a few bullies, he says he didn’t do anything to them. He also complained about the teachers being late and sometimes not even attending lessons. When I tried addressing the issues with the principal, he kept on making excuses like I am not available because of this or that etc. As soon as the first semester ended, I moved him to AIS-R. My son says he is much more happy there.
