  • If you thinking about sending your child here I would suggest investigating the school throughly and not be taken in by just its beautiful building and facilities. Internally this school is a mess. Teacher turnover rate is high, moral is low, the last Headmaster turned a good school into a absolute mess. Hopefully with a new headmaster and good leadership this school can turn itself around. The high tuition fee is not worth the price of admission. With all its internal problems, the school has been run on crisis management for the last two years. For now, I would stay away from this school until they have their act together.
