What do you like about the school? In what way(s) has the school been good for your child?
STAVROS STAVROU: I was impressed on how quickly our child has settled in with the help and support of all staff. The school cultivates a collaborative learning environment with rigorous academic curriculum. The teachers are of high calibre, very dedicated and they genuinely care about their pupils. They are pro-active in their communication with parents, very responsive to concerns, and care enough to stay and help pupils with tutoring even after school hours. Seeing our daughter motivated, focused and enthusiastic to continue every day her learning journey, gives us the confidence that we took the right decision to join the school. It is clear to us that the school instils the values of discipline, respect, hard work, collaboration and love for knowledge.
