12/28/15 – High School (Grades 7 – 12) Librarian
Queen’s College, Nassau, Bahamas
Sarah P’s comments: The Bahamas is one of those places that sounds like paradise but where the reality is somewhat different. Both school and college reviews state both a high cost of living and crime rate. Pluses are nice people, a balmy climate, and good beaches. It could be a good place to go to break into the international market. Read the reviews on International Schools Review before applying.
