Review for Tucson International School, Tucson, AZ, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

This school needs money, if only to stop nickel and diming the parents to death.

They claim that their tuition is all inclusive, while activities like science and music are activities with participation fees like other private schools in the area.

IST needs money. They'll ask you for it at every turn. Please give so that the parents cease to be the victims of IST's opaque pricing practices.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the constant requests for donations, giving, and extra fees for activities that public and charter schools take for granted.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

~ Make the pricing structure completely transparent and available on the public facing web page. ~ Charge activity fee to cover things like the exhibition pot lucks, ~ Separate the Pre-School and Junior School to better represent and serve the student population. ~ Enable the head of school (pre and junior) to represent parent concerns at any and all IST meetings ~ Involve & consult parents of affected facilities prior to any facility renovations

Role:  Client Served & Child(ren) attend the school.
