And some good background info on all International schools in Lanka, esp. the 2nd half of the thread.


All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya] / happy that their 2 Lankan fosterkids could complete normal schools there, many of the kids nextdoor are on International schools and often more for the pride of the parents than for the future of the kid...

As far as I know, this place in Galle is not a school. This is a place for diploma or certificate level courses. According to people who have studied there on those stuff, the place is crap.

Btw, if you want quality international schools in Sri Lanka, Colombo is the only place. In other places (Eg. Galle), the quality of international schools is very poor. Even in Colombo, it's the facilities which are good, not necessarily the education they receive.
