Considering the experience of the teachers and the sense of responsibility of the school owners and not being able to give diplomas, I suggest not to advertise this school to parents.

You will pay more for private tutor than school fee. The teachers can’t teach. Only three teachers are qualified, half the teachers don’t even speak English for teaching their subject correctly. When students struggle to pass, the principal tells the parent to pay for a tutor. What do the teachers do? Nothing. Go to Robert College instead.

Great school with great teachers. A learning environment that allows many opportunities for its pupils. Here in IIS, not only do we grow intellectually, but also spiritually. The teachers are highly qualified and very understanding and patient. It's a learning experience many of us are very lucky to have. (P.S. In no way am I writing this so I could get a good university recommendation.)

It's definitely not a good school. Their both primary and middle campuses are like extended pigeon cages. The high fee doesn't match the standard of the school. The school administration seems only interested in minting money. Some of the teaching staff also lack skills required for an an international school.
