My DS really enjoys the school, the teachers are great and he has really improved there, and he has good friends he plays around with while he`s there. The school itself is great and the facilities excellent. My DS was previously at another school and basically just stagnated there. Part of the problem was that the class had a lot of Egyptian and Middle Eastern kids whose sense of discipline was ZERO, and whose english skills were very poor. Classes were chaotic at times.
Now I think that the new Al-Muna school demographic might include a majority of arabic children (judging by the recent open meeting) and I`m worried my DS will go back to stagnating. It may be a british curriculum and staff would probably be all british or from western countries, but I`m sure controlling the kids will be a problem, and my DS won`t get the attention he gets at his present school.
So, would you transfer or not? Would you put up with all the driving knowing your DS is being given the best chance to thrive at school, or risk going to the new school for more sleep time, more play time, and more quality time, but all the time wondering if the school will be as good as the present one?
