    Default New Horizons bilingual school

    Anybody knows the going tuition rate for New horizons,pre-k and first grade? I sent them an email and got no response and it's not on their website either.ST George seems nice,but I would like non-sectarian and Carol Morgan seems good as well,but I don't think they are worth all that money.Also based on threads here,they said Carol Morgan doesn't have a welcoming environment towards parents.Aside from that,I also read here that New horizons is the only one with a true bilingual program.Any feedback will be greatly appreciated,thanks in advance everyone

    Sounds like the school for might be : ::: The American School ::: of Santo Domingo

    St George is not a religious school. Religion is taught because it is part of the Dominican curriculum. http://www.stgeorge.edu.do/english/INFO_asoc_padres.php

    Hate to hijack this thread, but would love to see tuition rates of what you guys are paying for bilingual schools, specially in Santiago. Ive got a 3 year old that I need to send to school soon.

    I know the gringas that teach there, I shall ask. I don't think any teach lower then 5th grade though.

    I'll let you know.

    Not that my opinion has any merit, but EVERY SINGLE gringo teacher I know there is horredous. They are all from Michigan and even though they are the highest paid teachers of the 3 schools that I know, they complain the most for the smallest reasons. They are also very young at 21-22 years old.

    2 cents given.

    Maybe when teaching their students they are very good.
    I know some teachers that have different "personalities" when teaching,than when socializing.
    Their "youth" can not be used as a negative.Young teachers have less "Burn Out" than some older teachers.
    My 2 cents.

    I have my three kids since 6 years (the oldest one) in New Horizon SANTIAGO. Its true it is the only with a real bilingual program which incl. teaching both cultures : American and Spanish-Dominican.
    Every day 4 ours english teaching 4 ours Spanish teaching.
    From my point of view it is the best school I can get here in Santiago for my children.
    Prices depends , you can earn up to 10 % by paying in advance, but count with about US$ 4000 to start with.Add uniform, books and other material some US$ 1000.
    The school is very personal, you can easy get contact with the owner family who is directly involved in the daily business.
