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?

Parents are responsible for the following: 1) Uniforms - Must be bought from the school store but are comfortable and cost much less than other postings we have had. 2) Musical Instrument rental 3) Laptops are required starting in grade 7 4) Some after-school activities ISM does not incorporate things like field trips, year books and many after-school activities into the tuition. - May 30, 2017
Yes. The uniform is not very expensive, but it is separate from other school fees. Students can buy lunches or bring their own. The cafeteria is big and offers a variety of choices (including vegetarian). - Jan 4, 2016
