As a teacher, what are the major plus points for working here?
Britannica International School has a strong curriculum that is brought by both the administration and teachers alike, so that the students may have a powerful opportunity to learn. A second plus point is the student to teacher ratio being 1:10, so teachers will have more time to teach students individually and less grading papers and teaching.
What areas do you feel are in need of development?
The development that I would believe is acceptable would be for the administration to increase its intervention between parents, teachers, and students. They’re doing a great job, though I think it could be better.
What advice would you give to other teachers considering working at this school?
My advice for those who would want to teach here, I think it’s a great idea, especially for those teaching abroad in Europe to gain experience. The administration is quite helpful here.
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.
