So to keep it clear, I want to talk about everything I dislike about this school: -School is always short on the staff, sometimes can even end up giving teachers more work because of the lack of attendees. (but to be fair teachers are the only aspect I like about this school so I'm not going to complain about this section any further) -Bathrooms are in poor condition; broken toilets, filthy floors, and rubbish all over the place. -Bullying is a serious problem; a lot of students get harassed, or are affected by the prejudice and racism of their fellow classmates. (ie: some students that come from outside the UAE get bullied for their accents) -Cheap gadgets; tables are always in a horrible state, laptops are very laggy and fragile, yet we pay the price of an iPad to receive and fix. -(tied to laptop) Laptops didn't get updated until now. Also, fixing the school laptop is a very tedious process. (like for Pete's sake, why do you need a whole semester to fix the mouse pad!?) -(This is more of a problem that faces me, and I think it is important to point out) Buses are sometimes in a horrible state, especially my bus -- bus 60. Last year, at Ramadan, we had the finals of the 3rd semester. The bus that goes to Jumeirah was being repaired that time, so they needed to combine the students that go to that bus to my bus (the bus that goes to Dubai Marina, so no big deal). Our bus was not in a good condition either, since one of the tyres was broken for half the exam days' duration and the AC didnt work until the last exam day. Last week, our bus was exchanged with another bus that wasn't working (the bus would shut down while the driver was on the road). This is unacceptable. None of the students should be in the same situations that I faced. -Treatment in this school is not fair. A lot of the decisions in this school are bizarre and also biased to some of the students. In conclusion, this school should REALLY keep what I, and a lot of the other students and parents, say. This is school, a place where a kid grows and obtains knowledge to become a useful member of our society, but if they're met with the same conditions as this school, they're most probably going to go through one rocky trip. Granted, this doesn't mean that the school doesn't have good aspects, it just needs to work on enhancing them. Addition: To a lot of the students that review this school, keep in mind that you should not include your own opinion (except if it's something critical that you should talk about for the people who are thinking of joining this school). Please keep in mind that reviews are useful as they reflect said place. In short, please write the facts, not your opinion.
