As a parent, what are the major plus points for sending your child/children to this school?
Good community, good students, reasonably excellent academics, on average very good teachers, good to mix not just with expat temporary students as students tend to stay here for the longer term. Teachers care about the school and students, and that shows. Many opportunities to get involved in activities.
In what areas do you feel the school needs improvement?
Communication with day student parents about events, scheduling can be terrible; inclusion of day students also need improvement. On the other hand, kids become quite independent and learn to organise their days. More time should be scheduled for serious subjects although I believe this does happen in higher forms.
What advice would you give to other parents thinking about sending their child/children to this school?
Personally, I think there are issues with almost all international schools. I feel this one is way better than most and has a sense of community and belonging that are not necessarily at the other schools. Academics is excellent in general. If you are after the typical expat international school experience, then this is not the school for you. If you want your kids to understand something about the local environment, have a wonderful learning experience, and mix with kids they may not ordinarily mix with, this school is good.

As a parent, what are the major plus points for sending your child/children to this school?
Referrals from a friend. Do NOT send your child to this school. Check the rankings there are much better schools. Don't make your worst decision ever!
In what areas do you feel the school needs improvement?
Secluded environment surrounded by bushes filled with snakes and a few other animals and also mosquitoes. The school authorities also turn a blind eye to all this. Staff are rude and poorly trained. Avoid this school!
What advice would you give to other parents thinking about sending their child/children to this school?
Find another school from the top ranking schools. Don't send your child to this below average, rude and dangerous school.
