My Son is going to the school for nursery, I have to admit, my first judgment based on school structure and possible short funding is average, however; the school proved surprisingly the contrary, I came to realize it is tremendously outstanding & exceptionally respectable school. The nursery teachers were not just lovely and kindly hearted but they were amazing on behaviour and kids controlling ability. the Principle is great person as well, met her couple of times, I give 9 out of 10 to this school and its marvellous team. Well Done

The International School Aberdeen

N Deeside Rd, Aberdeen AB15 9PN, UK – 01224 730300

Its a nice school but i think its PRIVATE! And some people brag that they dont have to ware uniforms .

Excellent School. We've had two children through the school and cant praise it enough. A combination of excellent teachers, small classes and teachers who dedicate time out of lessons to resolving all issues results in above average academic results. A very open atmosphere is encouraged where children mix freely and exclusive cliques are rare.

My kids Aziza(7) and Yahya(5) they attend this school and from day one they have been so excited. I thought this energy is not going to last as most for kids with schools but was not for them. A running 7 months and they still excited the way they were at the begginning this is because of: Cheerful Facualty Skilled teachers Lovely atmosphere Amazing mixture of cultures And definatly a great crriculm. Although Parking and School buliding is a minor issue i highly recommend it for parent with children in Reception and Primary stage.
