The school is absolutely terrible for high school education. This is my experience as a student in this school. I transferred in Grade 11 hoping to find a better education to pursue the IB program and I was completely and utterly disappointed. Most of the teachers had no idea that the IB had a syllabus and were absolutely negligent for the entire 2 years. I will not state names for confidentiality but subjects like French and Math were a train wreck, no practice was made for these subjects, lessons were rushed and the syllabus was finished 2 weeks before the exam, leaving no room for practice. I can't emphasize how badly the syllabuses were rushed or neglected for major subjects like Math and Psychology, especially at the end of the year. For most subjects, I ended up taking private lessons outside the school or self-studying. The school is absolutely not flexible with taking criticism. English teachers were very negligent and did not provide us, the students with any practice for exams. This also applies to A-level students, who also expressed major criticism for the academic quality provided by the school If you are looking for qualified teachers and proper academic quality for high school education, I would recommend Al Hayyah Academy or New Village school, I completely regret not going there as the academic quality would have differed drastically. Under any circumstances if you are a parent DO NOT enroll your children in this school, it is a very poor academic environment for high school.

I used to be a student in this school several years ago and honestly this school is a good example of money wastage , if you are someone who is willing to throw millions into thin air then send your children to this school.
