Bratislava - School Report Question and Answers

Greatest challenge?

Lack of clarity of what the school's purpose is--is it international? Then it needs to treat all students as members, not teach to those with limited English more than those who have English. Is it an English-as-a-second-language school? Then it needs to communicate that to expats whose children speak fluent English. Can it differentiate levels within classrooms? We found that it could not, even with good teachers; it's just too hard with 10 different levels (and languages). Other challenges: Very old facility, high fees for parents but lacking in resources in classrooms, not a very good library, few outside-the-school educational opportunities (despite being in the heart of Europe). - Nov 2010
