We were incredibly nervous when my husband was told about moving to Madrid. Our 3 children did not speak English very well and certainly not Spanish. We were looking for an international school, which would give our children ESL support but also kid of embrace them because they are usually quite shy. We also wanted all our children in the same school. We wanted a good school, but also a school that best fitted our children’s personalities. Senida gave us some options, but then by process of elimination we decided on a small school in the North of Madrid which when we visited had exactly that ‘warm and fuzzy’ feeling they promised.
Our budget was way below that of prime schools in Egypt. Even though EEE advised us on a particular school, we decided to register our daughter in a school which fitted our budget. Needless to say, she hated it from the very beginning, because although the school was called international, our daughter was the only foreigner in her class. She felt different and did not enjoy going to school. We went back to EEE, this time we took their advice, we made some life adjustments to increase our budget and registered our daughter at MBIS. She flourished! She was happy and we could see the transformation in her life.
What we like about EEE was the fact that they are expatriates as well as educators, so they understand what we’re looking for and what an international school should be like
EEE are easy to talk to and they know the market. If they tell you these are your options, those are it! They’ve done their homework and have visited many schools in numerous countries. Emailing back and forth was quick and easy.
We had written to a few schools asking for information such as school fees and academic standards. As we didn’t receive an answer, we decided to call EEE and they happened to have the information we were looking for, helping us make a decision.
When we heard about relocating to Senegal, we were sure that no one would be able to give us information on the best school. The information on Internet was very confusing. We realised that the world ‘international’ does not always mean ‘expatriate children’. In the end we only had one option, but it was the school we were looking for.
Only one of our sons got accepted in the school of our choice in Abu Dhabi, so we were desperate for options, as our embassy did not seem to have information on the best British schools. We spoke to EEE and we took their advice. We moved both our sons to the school they recommended, and never looked back again. Best decision ever!
EEE advised us on the best international school in Cairo, Egypt. We talked about what we were looking for in an international school and they recommended us one, just one, school! It was the best! We only visited that single school, and everything fell into place. We saved so much time by being pointed in the right direction right from the beginning.
I had the great privilege of meeting Senida in Cairo. The first impression one gets as soon as one start conversing with her, is her thorough analytical approach she applies in all topics. We are a diplomatic family who move around the world every 3 years. EEEA has been great in helping us compare and contrast the different international schools in different countries before deciding the best schools for our sons. EEEA is fantastic at analysing the academic standards as well as other variable factors around education that are essential to bear in mind prior to choosing a very good international school. We are just about to move to our next posting, the Philippines and EEEA has been extremely helpful in conducting a through research for us looking at all the different schools in Manila in order to find the most suitable one for our sons bearing in mind our sons' academic progress, their personalities as well as the educational values we believe in as a family. Senida is very good at reading people’s needs and wishes and matching them with the best international school that best suits each student.
