Reykjavik - School Report Question and Answers

Please describe some of your child's/children's highlights and challenges during their time at this school.

Highlights include all the friends he made at school (his favorite thing about living in Iceland). We also met some nice families through the school and became friendly with several parents. The school really helped not only our child's social network, but ours as well. Other highlights include some favorite teachers who were dynamic and made lessons fun. Also, some interesting lessons (especially in IPC) that our child was excited about, and the times we were invited to visit the school and he proudly showed us his work. Also several fun events organized each year by the PTA. Challenges during our child's time at the school included construction work around the school, and some safety concerns related to this. Fortunately this has mostly been resolved. Also, as is the case with international schools in general, our child had to say many goodbyes over the years as friends left and moved back to their home countries or elsewhere. - Jun 2023

My kids thrived in a small school environment and made friends for life. Their teachers were passionate. Despite the British curriculum, my kids were well prepared to transfer to a highly competitive US high school, where they are getting mostly "As" in their honors classes. - Jul 2022
