For Tut House (high school) the teachers are mediocre, many teach subjects other than their specialty. In the Tut House very few parents are involved. Students who do not pursue the IB are often left out.
Great International School with outstanding academics- including IB programs. The international environment is a great plus, with children from all over the world. A tough, competitive learning environment really prepares children for university life making college seem easy by comparison.
It's big. It's very big. If the vision of your six-year-old going through the school gates with 18-year-old giants fills you with dread, think twice. It's also a little impersonal. Think the sports teacher your child has been raving about will ever actually remember the kid's name? Not necessarily. He has about 100 in each year to deal with. UNIS won't fill you with a warm and fuzzy feeling. And it's UN ethos, though laudable, can feel hard to get a hold on. When everyone is from everywhere, it can feel as though nobody is from anywhere. That said, the teaching is outstanding, the curriculum breathtaking and ...a child that can survive UNIS's rigorous academic standards, and mammoth scale, will flourish anywhere.
Great teachers, small classes, and such a varied class! since it's an international school, my best friends are mexican, russian, spanish, cameroonian, french... Its amazing! also there are so many ib courses to choose from. Unis is really the best of the best!
UNIS is a great school, ever since I started coming here, in 5th grade, I've always felt accepted and I've made the greatest friends. On top of that, I really have had some unforgettable teachers and I am learning a lot and I am interested in learning.
UNIS is an excellent learning environment for those foreign and local. Attending a school with friends from so many different backgrounds and cultures brings an intellectual outlook from a young age. Small classrooms provide students with a personal relationship with their teacher; thus fear of approaching a teacher after class in nonexistent. Because of the small classes, teachers have more times for individuals as well. If they fear a student is slacking, the student will be approached, and helped. Going to a school with a grade school, middle school and high school is beneficial. There is always a group that you aspire to someday be like; and there are always younger students which you should be setting a good example for.
