/ What to bring, ship, pack for our move to Warsaw
My kids have been in the British School for 5 years now . The standard of teaching is hit & miss depending on which teacher you get & their level of experience ( & I found that it also depends on how long the teacher has been in Poland, with the new ones hardly being able to cope with the culture shock themselves let alone manage a class of 20 kids ) .
What I would say is that the British School kidergarten/pre nursery which is on the smaller Dabrowskiego site ( in Mokotow when considering housing ) is a well run school with a warm & friendly atmosphere . Both of my kids loved it there .
When I first arrived in Warsaw I also had the school dilemma & gave serious consideration to the American School . I eventually decided on the Brtish School as it was smaller & I felt less intimidating for my kids .
( The American school also has a lot of super rich & super spoilt Polish kids who attend , making it difficult for 'normal' kids to fit in.) ( Traffic in & out of konstancin is also hell.)
Lastly,I do know of some parents who have moved their kids from the British school to the American school ... I don't know of anybody who has moved from american to British ...
One word of warning though, both schools are difficult enough to get your kids into , so the sooner you make contact & get on a waiting list the better.
By the way , fees in the British School are PLN 55k per year ( similar in American School ) .
