Hello Expat Parents,
We're moving to Bucharest this summer and I've selected the Mark Twain International School and KG for my 5-year-old-to-be. However, I'm in desperate need of some comments or reviews of parents whose children have attended it. For example, are the children happy there? Do they really speak English there -- teachers? students? -- so is it more than just a gimmick? Is there a sizeable expat community of children there and what's their national makeup? How much time do they have to be physically active (not only in gym class, but during breaks, particularly outside breaks)? Are the parents happy with their kids' academic and emotional development?
I'm worried about the move overall and in particular about how he'll adapt to a new place, a new language, new people around him and a lack of his old friends, so at least am trying to gather a sufficient amount of info about his likely new school. So if you've sent or know someone whose kids attend/have attended the MTIS, I would be grateful for any and all comments or reviews -- positive or negative -- they're all welcome!
