My daughter doesn't learn any thing, most of the time no classes, teachers doesn't work student skip the classes , in addition to all these your school infected my daughter mentally She came home every day with tears on her cheeks always cry and always complain from the school She told me that she is the lonely student who wants to learn I sent many complains I came many times to solve problems but futility nothing changed and I think it will not change sorry for that but no hope. But you know that I'm a journalist and I will tell everybody about it ,unless you do find some way out from all those problems

Newton International School Lagoon presents itself as a perfect school in front of the ministry of education and parents but in reality in the past 7 years i spent being a student of this school I’ve come to the realization that the school simply fails to provide the proper environment for a student to succeed. The Problems with Newton: -The school’s secondary department staff changes every year making it difficult for students to settle in to the schools and environment -The school fails to enforce rules upon students. Must students in this school disrupt teachers while teaching, skip lessons and cause fights which effect the entire student body. -The school fails to help students who suffer from bullying from their peers; I’ve known a lot of students who seeker help from teachers but were not offered any help. - The school encourages students to lie to the ministry of education as days or weeks prior to a ministry visit the school informs students to change the way they act to better the schools reputation. -The school fails to fix school equipment. For example every desk in this school has missing trays, holes, graffiti and broken. In conclusion, Newton International School is a school that presents itself to be a perfect school in front of people but in reality the school has so many problems that it is hard for a normal student not to ignore.

Well i like the teachers as they have nice humor and maturity although the kids bully A LOT there is not a single day that goes by seeing someone not getting bullied the kids are just terrible so i do get in arguments with the kids and most likely hit them so when we get sent to the principal’s office i am the one that gets most of the bad punishments while the other kid gets just a minor witch is unfair and i think we should both be getting the same punishments and side note they mostly bully for people’s weight the school should get this sorted out.

Terrible online schooling sessions. Teachers consistently late to start lessons often resulting in my child sitting aimlessly at the computer screen staring at nothing.. And then for the Arabic lessons online they never address my child if he is understanding. He’s native English speaking and has no personal 1-1 treatment from the online teacher, so he’s pretty much just listening to noise not learning anything. Whilst I understand we are living in an Arabic country I thought the curriculum was supposed to be British but 70% of his online lessons are Arabic when one would have hoped perhaps the subjects would be distributed out a bit more. For example more maths and geography. But no...

My honest opinion about this school is that it is a bad school, not because of the teachers, but because of the management. The school also is very insecure about its reputation and image and any negative review you have online with any link to who you are will lead to a chat with the principal and head of year who’ll scare you into removing it with threats of prosecution (this has happened, with a witness available) The teachers are over stressed and overworked and as such so are the students. The principal seems to find that wearing the right shoes is more important than education, because they’ll send you back home from the gate solely for that. Everything I have stated here is complete facts and I have no intention to harm or defame anyone in this review.

Bad school and the teachers are the worst and the secondary principal can not manage a class how can he manage a school. That is my honest opinion
