As a teacher, what are the major plus points for working here?
The International School of Aberdeen offers various facilities for teachers. Here, teachers can take students to outdoor learning spaces like a nature/wetland area as it helps students meditate, concentrate, and interact more with the lesson plan. Another great point is that the school offers teachers to instruct single subjects as well as labs and art rooms to assist them to educate the students. Teachers can also join the International House World Organization program that has teachers join students between the ages 18-60 to learn English and about British culture.
What areas do you feel are in need of development?
I feel the administration is too strict on the students; however, I understand the necessity of having standards for a high education. There is room for leniency toward students.
What advice would you give to other teachers considering working at this school?
It’s a great school to teach. There’s much expectation from both students and teachers.
I certify that this review is my own opinion based on my personal experience of this school. I understand that International Schools Advisor may remove this review if it is found to be in breach of the site's Terms & Conditions.
