2019-2020 Educational Offer & School Fees

When setting our services and fees, the Board and the Head of Schools carefully consider a range of issues including affordability, demand, competitiveness with other international schools, increasing operating expenses, the costs of implementing the Cambridge or the IB curriculum, and the need to continue attracting high-quality teachers both locally and internationally. These are just a few of the ways we’re striving to provide the best quality education possible at an exceptionally competitive price.

Our academic year runs from September 2, 2019, to June 26, 2020*, and is divided into two semesters.
