Aside from school fees, are there required expenses such as uniforms, laptops/tablets, musical instruments, or field trips that parents are expected to cover? What are the approximate costs?

Tuition covers tuition and school supplies. You can either pay for a semester lunch pass or bring lunch if your child prefers. After-school activities (sports, drama, swim team, Model UN, choir, etc) are all included in tuition. From middle school on, parents need to provide a laptop for their student, though no specific brand or age of laptop is required. Much of the homework assignments are uploaded through Google classroom and the school uses 'smart classrooms', so laptop is important. - Nov 18, 2017
