In my class last year 7 students out 15 failed.
I would not recommend that school.

I've gone to this school for five and a half years, and it's only been good. Great teachers, close to no bullying. every one knows every one. You always get the help you need.

This school has extremely low academic standards. Do now let your parents waste their money on this boarding school. Besides the poor teaching, dull curriculum and poor classroom management, the food served to boarding students is typically terrible ( never enough protein), so your child will be perpetually hungry.

A friend of mine has visited the campus and it is a stange mix of a Scandinavian School, a non accredited europeanschool and Bogaerts International School?
As the Scandinavian School does offer an ib program, we were still interested to know a bit more about them.
However, as we have been advised to check on their finances; it is clear that according to Price WaterhouseCoopers that the school is really struggling financially.
Be careful.

I went to this school several years ago. The teachers were very helpful and friendly. The surroundings are beautiful, and the atmosphere is peaceful.
