  1. I want know school schedule, (I mean school starts from XX o’clock and end at XX o’clock.)

    1. Please check details by contacting the school directly or by checking the school Website. This is only a listing and this site is not affiliated with the school in any way.

  2. My experience with this school has been disappointing at best. Have my grader enrolled at the school.
    1. Two weeks of back and forth on enrollment
    2. School calendar is an online tool for communications – non functional and inaccurate. No change or reply from principle or mgt team weeks after email and printed note to school
    3. Homework for a 1st grade in excess of an hour on few days a week
    4. Some of the curriculum does not match a graders level of development.
    5. Interesting to note US teachers working against a British curriculum
    6. Clearly not certified on the curriculum either
    7. On 1st day of school…I literally walked up to the school bus, walked out with my kid no questions asked no acknowledgement from any of the staff
    8. One size fits all “Adults” survival back pack. Must see to understand the ridicule.
    9. Sent through a note about my Daughters enlarged Tonsils, narrow throat for teach and principle awareness. Month later and a printed note – no response/acknowledgement.
    10. Online communications system…nice idea but dysfunctional
    11. Head teacher not aware of school web page as it differs drastically on mobile and PC. Some function better on mobile others on PC (Nice idea but badly executed) – Single parent had mom make a trip all the way out to Tokyo based on inaccurate web information. To date calendar not resolved.
    12. Writing and spelling for a 1 grader – has the teacher write in best adult scribble as example for my daughter to copy as practice. The word Difference looked like ditterence …
    13. On my 1st visit I noticed at least two classroom had wall to wall mirrors, the shatter type (re-purposed building). Made a few request to have these removed. I was assured they withstood the 3/11 so should be ok. Finally they were boarded over. 1st floor assembly room I notice still had these…

    List goes on…

    In summary: Disorganized, no passion, poor quality, unresponsive, much to desire…
