Are the teachers at the school required to speak English as a first language--or at least fluently?

Yes, everyone speaks English. Though levels vary...the PE teacher, for example, allows cursing but I don't think she knows that is frowned upon by native speakers.

All written communication from the school is clearly not written by a strong English speaker. Makes the school look unprofessional. - Dec 28, 2017

Yes. As a native English speaker, I have never had trouble communicating in English with any of the staff. - Sep 20, 2013
Yes - all the main teachers are native English speakers, and all the local staff speak English very well. - Aug 3, 2011
