Hello all, our family will be moving to Riyadh from the US this summer. We are finding it incredibly difficult to secure schooling for our son in an international English speaking school. Our top four choices either have long waiting lists for his grade, or cannot guarantee a spot until he has been assessed in person, which most likely will be August just before school starts. At that point (assuming he passes the assessment) he would be offered a spot if there is one available. However it seems there is a high chance that there won't be available seats left at that time i.
I am wondering what other parents have done in such a situation? Do you home-school until a space becomes available at your school of choice? What other options are there in such cases?
