Its just surpising that an under18 person has got a kid studying in school!!!
We moved in to Doha recently and got our kid admitted in MES .Very sorry to say that teaching standards are below par. Girls section is the worst. Gender discrimination exists in the school when it comes to facilities provided and privileges granted. (Girls virtually have no access to computers and have very limited access to library. Canteen for Girls section also poorer in its offer).
General cleaning and hygiene standards are appalling. Most of the janitors are more interested in sharing lost and found stuff among themselves than doing their assigned tasks. Non Malayalam speaking kids feel suffocated as the all ambiance officially discourage the use of English.
We are just waiting for the earliest opportunity to take our kid out. My sincere advice to you all is to look options other than MES.
