Registration has started almost everywhere for the next term. I haven’t made up my mind yet on where to enroll my son. He turns 4yrs in August.
My options are:
AIS: School building is very old and it needs major renovation. I took a tour around the KG department. I noticed their KG teachers were not Americans but everyone was super friendly. I loved the fact that the school offers IBO which is a great move.
Registration fee is 30 KD. School fees: KG 1 1936 KD.
ASK: School provides amazing facilities, it’s so huuuuge. I loved it in so many ways. The lady who showed us around knew what she was doing. Problem is their fees are ridiculous. I would so love my kid to go there.
School fees: KG 1 2410 and KG 2 2545 KD.
BSK: They didn’t let us look around, and we’ll have to wait until March to apply his papers. We need an appointment as well to look around.
School fees: 2215 KD.
KES: I was told over the phone that I would be able to look around without a prior appointment turns out we’re not allowed! I didn’t like their admin. lady, she’s not a friendly type of person. Plus I was told my son would be on the waiting list. I can still hand in his application form and no registration fees so I think I’ll give it a try.
School fees: 1315 KD.
It’s such a hard decision for us. I know my way around a British system and that’s why I wanted to consider British schools at first but I’m kinda liking American schools now. What worries me is they’re going to be different to what I’m used to and I’ll be doing the teaching in the end. I really hope I don’t teach, I suck at teaching!
