Sarah P’s comments:  Review info included saying that shopping and apartments were expensive but that there were adequate teaching materials and nice students.  Due to impending accreditation it will greatly help to have knowledge and experience with the IB PYP curriculum.  If you don’t, then read everything you can find and start volunteering at a school near you which offers this (visit Find an IB World School to search).
