Teacher turnover is high. Class sizes are big and undisciplined students and parents that come dressed inappropriately. Sports squad selection is done based on child's nationality rather than their ability.

The staff is racist and they even showed that intolerable behaviors to kids as well. I am disappointed in how KHDA can provide such a rating to school with this kind of behavior.

Truly outstanding school! Not commercial like most of the other schools, they are very caring and genuine. Amazing management, happy teachers, great communication. I transferred my son from EIS which I found to be very money-oriented and not progressive at all. My son is really happy and I can see a huge academic progress

As a student in this school I feel like we should have more kinder teachers that care about the education of a student , and many students get bullied the teachers do nothing about it just give them a time out for 2 minutes and they dont stop ,also many kids get bully the teacher
