We absolutely love this school. Our oldest started when it opened in 2009 and we now have three children attending. We are grateful that our mixed children are part of an international community that hails from Portugal, Spain, Russia, Sweden, Hungary, Romania, Turkey, Greece, Morocco, Iran, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Brazil, Peru, among many more, and a teaching staff that has taught in Germany, Japan, Chile, Columbia, etc. It's a pleasure listening to all the different languages spoken on campus. We support the IB learner profile, the Units of Inquiry, the Caring School community, even the Think Cards :) Oh, and don't forget the pen pals in Berlin! Yes, there are fundraising and volunteer expectations, but even at a $20-30K/yr private or parochial school, you are expected to contribute time and $$$$ on top of tuition payment. In my opinion, these fundraising and volunteer opportunities are a great way to meet other parents. My personal favorite are our shine-the-school and garden clean-up days. And on many such occasions, we ended up walking away with plans for a dinner and/or a playdate with our new friends.
