Look for other schools . This school has a pretty bad performance from its staff and teachers. Try calling them and ask if there is a place for your children which there will be because many are leaving for better schools. Contact Raha school for instance and there is many parents on the wait list eager to transfer their children there. Be careful and do your homework before thinking going this school.

The classes are Very big. Like 28-30 students big. They will lie and say that the class is only 20-25 students. I’ve never seen small classes. Tuition very expensive. So you pay a lot of money for your child to share a teacher with 29 other children. The higher ups have no problem cramming all these students into classrooms. Go somewhere else where the classes are smaller and costs less.

This school helped in developing my child's overall personality. Kindness is their motto which is very important.

GAA has been a great experience for our family. This school is very student focused and the teachers guide the students well. The administrative staff is friendly and helpful. If you take the time to get involved you will find a caring environment and team of professionals that work hard to ensure the success of students.

My kids have been attending GAA for 8 years and we absolutely love it. They are challenged and pushed to reach their full potential daily. Welcoming community and supportive staff.

Only for good facilities their fees is high , bad management and horrible school system which only committed to making money and their principal has no clue of students and parents concerns. My kids reports were blocked by their system without informed reason and surprisingly no one in their management knew why only their vice principal who was on summer vocation !which caused delay in my kids registration and had to wait 2 months to get it and officially complained to MOE. Be carful if you plan to register your kids with this poor management commitment and only money focused school.
