Are students generally challenged appropriately by the curriculum? Please describe any particular strengths or weaknesses in this area.

Although the school states that they "differentiate," teachers who are capable to teach in that manner are rare at VIS. Most of them teach only to the mainstream. The school markets a "mother tongue" program but most of the tutors don't have a teaching experience in that area. Math is another big problem in primary and secondary school which leads students to be ill-prepared for IB. - Oct 11, 2017
