My son attends Winston Churchill and just completed his first year. Overall we like the school. What I like about this school are the teachers. The teachers my son had were experienced teachers who seemed to enjoy their jobs. Their lessons were creative and interesting, and my son really enjoyed learning in all of his classes.
Overall not satisfactory. The school has some very bad teachers and only a few good dedicated teachers. Some of the teachers can be very rude to kids, don't follow any textbooks and don't complete their curriculum during the year. A handful of teachers are very good in this school and really care about teaching. Teachers don't communicate with the parents much. Most of the school happenings are communicated via a BTV video every day! (sometimes no email or flyers) . Students are not in their best behaviors. Administration does not know how to handle kids well. They are however liberal in throwing detentions, suspensions to the kids on mistakes; sometimes harming even well behaved kids. Principal is inattentive and rude. Only good things are - the clubs (for which too there is intense competition), IB curriculum (Lots of projects done during school year to make the kids, think, learn and grow) and the few dedicated teachers.
Great school. Whoever said that its IB vs trash, they are wrong. There is no segregation.
My daughter brought home homework only two times and one of those homework assignments was to color an Easter basket. She got straight A's on her report card. I then asked that she be placed in more changeling classes and she was. The problem was that the teachers were DISCOURAGING the students form pursuing the advanced levels. The reason was that there were too many students and they needed to reduced the size of the class. Instead of encouraging students to challenge themselves and increase the size of the "advanced" classes they wanted to increase the remedial ones. Keep in mind that the "advance" classes are not that advanced. It is so bad that many English teachers read to their class rather than have the students read the books assigned.
