Tucson International School
February 5, 2011
I don't understand this negative review. IST does not charge any extra fees except for clubs like soccer or basketball when there is an outside charge. Parent Association events like potlucks are nothing to do with the school. If you don;t like it, go to a meeting and vote. Music is an extra charge because they are private lessons!! There is nothing at private or charter schools better than at IST. The school does fundraising because tuition doesn't cover everything. This is all published in the newsletter. Fees bring in $700,000. Salaries and rent are $700.000. That means building costs like the new preschool building or purchasing the campus come from fundraising. At a private school we cannot escape fundraising. We are very happy at IST. We have one child in PS and one child in JS. We have friends at other schools and when we hear their stories, we are glad to be at IST.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My children are excited about school and about learning. They are ahead of their friends and relatives. They have opportunities other children do not have: chess, soccer, basketball, science, music, theater, dance
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Donate a million dollars.
