          Not a very good school, the play experience is not best, and students come out of their thinking they are the best and are much cooler than others. No discipline is present and drugs and alcohol is a big issue in the higher standards. However classrooms are decently equipped.

          One of the best international schools in town. They have all the facilities you really require, whether it be an an astro to play football on, or a table tennis room, or state of the art science laboratories or up to date classrooms with projectors and some with smart boards, or a fabulous theater room, or a modern auditorium perfect to watch a movie or plays in, or a spacious cafeteria and what not! The school simply keeps getting better each and every year! Wondering what's the next surprise they have to offer! The computer laboratories have no shortage of computers and the school has ample of highly skilled professional teachers and a marvelous principle who can't be compared to any other!
