As a teacher, what are the major plus points for working here?
As a teacher the major plus points for working at Saint Andrew’s International High School is, that is has great before and after school programs. As a teacher you’re able to teach various languages such as Mandarin, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. As a teacher a major plus is how engaged the students are into learning as this is an excellent school for higher learning. The SAT/ACT prep programs are great for teachers to enter to teach students.
What areas do you feel are in need of development?
The school should accommodate special education and provide transportation for students. From experience I think the school could develop when it comes to diversity sensitivity – it’s not very liberal when it comes to cultural acceptance, it’s either you’re black or white.
What advice would you give to other teachers considering working at this school?
This can be a great place to gain experience if you’re able to get along with the students. The students (many of them) are quite disrespectful in the sense of entitlement. There are other schools to teach if you have the options.
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.
