We’re originally from Russia, then we moved to Prague and then England. Our son just graduated. Now he’s planning to go to England to study Medicine – he’ll take a gap year and then study. What I like most about ICS – it’s the community – I’ve never seen such a community – we travelled many countries – but I’ve never seen this – there are so many different clubs – bringing all parents together. And, I really like the school – the IB is a great programme preparing students for university – so they can step in and be ready. When we had a problem in the beginning, the teachers reacted and sorted it out very quickly. It’s great – you always want to see your child happy.
