  • Hello and goo day
    I am expecting to move to Fair banks in the coming January. I have 2 sons, one in 1st mid school and the second son is in 1st elementary schools. By the coming January 2010 they would finish the first term of this year in Alexandria, Egypt. By the way they study in English. What do we really need to bring and do to transfer to your respected school?
