School has no respect when it comes to their local employees they make promises they can’t keep. The school had major legal issues and students who were suicidal online and refuse to support the student. They will threaten to fire or write up any teacher who questions management on the spot. This school is not for the weak you will have to fight from every aspect to get what’s in your contract. They say previous reviews are from an upset staff but do nothing to resolve the same issues next year. Move along and don’t pick this school it will give you nothing but a headache and a heartache.

Excellent school. Some strange negative reviews that may have been written by a former staff member. Excellent management, great teachers, simple facilities but good. I strongly recommend.

The facilities at this school are the bare minimum and most furniture is from DIY. The school does nothing to upscale itself and you can find a much better international school with facilities such as Desa Park or Tenby. There is a reason why this school is the cheapest international school...because its cheap in all aspects. Students have found dead rats in random places and the school will smell of rubbish at times. The location is also not in a safe area. They struggle to keep students because classrooms are not cleaned properly and the staff are being paid very low wages with no benefits. Use your money and invest in a better education for your child elsewhere.

Everything you see online is photoshopped. They have found rats in the school and cannot seem to get rid of the issue. The facilities are often not cleaned and children are scared to go to the bathroom. My child was enrolled here during Covid and it as easier for them to get away with not showing me the school. Parents are not generally welcomed to come into the school instead meet into the reception. Parents are paying the same price as it would cost to go to Desa Park with much nicer facilities.

Great school with excellent administrators and fabulous teachers. It's a great learning environment for kids and my own kids are really happy there. The fees are reasonable and all teachers are native English speakers. No complaints here for sure!

I’ve been very very happy with the school especially so with the management team and the teacher quality. My child comes back happy and almost fills my journey back with stories and excitement from school on a daily basis. Most importantly, my child gets to communicate well with all his teachers and being himself, knowing full well that he is not going to be judged. Just makes me as a parent extremely happy when my child is happy at school.

So this school is not going to be on my recommendation list but it is also not a school to stay away at all costs from. I will give a honest review of the school to help people who are interested. I have visited this school. So let’s start with the negatives first. -The facility isn’t good, there has been serval people who have been dropping stuff down from the condo above, it’s manly food items but still is dangerous. The school smells like garbage literally it’s was really unpleasant. There are dead bugs in the school, I find this really disgusting and unsatisfactory. -Education and teachers are okay but can be improved. The education seems okay but could use a few more classes such as computer science to name one of a few classes I think should be added. -The school is hard to get to, it’s not in a central area and has area is by the forest, wild animals like moneys are just outside the school sometimes which is a safety issue. -Security is rude and unhelpful, they are very difficult when you ask them for help to get to the school. What is good about the school -Low student to teacher ratio for secondary. This allows more time per student to have with the teacher. -Technology used is good, students get a device to use for classes. This is for secondary and upper primary. The classrooms are equipped with a projector. In the Innovation Lab there is a few 3D printers. So the school is not recommended to attend in my opinion. I have pointed out the main things that are good and bad but the bad is just outweighing the good.

Full disclosure - my company does consulting work for Kingsgate. That being said, it’s just a great looking school, right next to TPM. A bit of construction being finished up at one end of the City of Green complex, but the school is at the other end and complete. I’m biased of course, but worth checking out if you’re looking for a school in the area.
