Default Schooling in Cyprus

Hi all, we have made contact with the International School of Paphos, does anybody have children in the school who could give us some honest feedback on the school and its pass rates. We were quoted nearly 5000 euros per year (seems quite expensive) are you paying this?
I would appreciate any feedback Thanks Mike

Hi Mike,
I am after the same info and really hope someone lets you know.
I am going to the school on Thursday to see for myself, I have 3 children, 16,14,13, and am very anxious to know what the school offers.
Only over for a week, but want to give Cyprus a try after many years of visiting and loving it for so long, hoping to move in January 09.
I will check on this site to see your responses, and let you know what I find out directly from the school on my return.
Good luck,
best wishes
Jac

Hi Jac, thanks for replying, no feedback as yet from anybody but If I find anything out I will let you know. We have had a prospectus from the school and it looks like it has some great benefits for our children. Can I ask, have you work over there already and if so how did you find it?
Thanks Mike

Hi you seem to be looking for the same info as me , we hope to move over in the summer of 09 with kids aged 5 11 and 12, we visited the school and were shown around, it is all very new and keeps well kitted out with an all weather pitch , indoor gym/theatre stage, indoor pool and from what I was told there seems to be a very high pass rate for exams which are equal to UK ones to enable them to go to a good university, i hope this helps, i am also looking for feed back from anyone who is already there

Don't worry about digging old subjects up! If there is something you want to know and the relevant questions have not been answered then dig away!

I saw items about the International School of Paphos and the Heritage School of Limassol in the Cyprus Mail this week or maybe it was the Cyprus Weekly. They both got awards or good results. Sorry but I didn't take much notice as we don't have offspring at school. I will dig the paper out and see what it says....unless someone else read the items?

Hi Miles and Sue, we visited the International school of Paphos in October 2008 and were very impressed. The schools facilities are excellent and all the pupils seemed to be happy and enjoying their studies. We met the head of year and had a tour around the school and found the school had very high standards and we definitely had confidence that our daughter would have a better education than in the UK. We are hoping to move over next spring and our daughter would start in the school in September. If you need any further information please contact me again Thanks Mike

My daughter started 7th grade this year at ISOP. I have paid for tuition EUR5.220 plus EUR280 for labs, plus EUR340 registration deposit, plus EUR260 enrloment fee plus EUR17 for entrance examinations plus books and uniforms around EUR1.000. I have had a 10% discount for advanced payment of tuition fees. My daugher is a greek speaking Cypriot so she could have enrolled in a public school for free. We had our concerns but she chose ISOP and she is very happy with her choice. The school is very disciplined, organised and has good facilities. They have a teaching system that makes the students working and learning. The feeling I get after the few months she attentend the school is that it was a good choice.

I lived in South Africa for 15 years and i went to international school and found it so hard to become friends with the locals and found that english clung to english and needed so much extra tutuion were i had friends who went to local schools and did ok .. well early days yet -but think local schools are ok !
