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.
