You're the only site I know of that actually
lets us tell-it-like-it-is. I want to thank you for that. I tried to
warn colleagues about the inept Director that ran my last school and
other review sites removed my post. I won't mention names. Thanks ISR
for giving us something that's really about helping teachers.
International Schools Review,
I have found that teachers in international schools have no protection..i.e.
professional organizations. Most international teachers are at the
mercy of the administration. The admin. know they have teachers over
a barrel...you do as I say or you can quit...and if you do....no recommendations.
I have seen many, many times that even when international teachers
work hard they receive evaluations that are very unfair. Thank you
for giving us a place where we can post the turth.
I'm a member, and I love what you
do. It is truly empowering for teachers. Keep up the great work!
the power of this site comes through the directors knowing that we,
as teachers, now have something to work with. Hopefully, in the end,
ISR will help to provide more accountability on the part of all directors.
Dear folks at International Schools Review,
Thank you for actually doing what I am
sure many of us international teachers out here on the international
school circuit have talked about. I have recently found a great international
teaching position after a couple of really woeful schools. It is great
that you are providing a service to international teachers that is
truly Independent. After all, recruiters really act as agents for the
international schools and not the teachers. Perhaps your site may have
the effect of forcing the fourth and fifth rate international schools
out there to pull up their socks a little if they wish to recruit teachers.
Fantastic work!! This was an early Christmas present for me. My past
international schools are already flying their flag of mediocrity on
your web site. Thanks.
wish I would have known about this site before I came to this school.
I have not told the school I am leaving, but will hopefully not
have to return in September. I have never thought of doing anything
so unprofessional in my life.
Just wanted to say thanks for creating
this website - it's about time somebody did it.
I've often sat with groups of teachers and discussed
the need for such a service. Hope this is a huge
success. Will pass your address on to others. Regards.
Dear International Schools Review,
..by the way, I REALLY think that this something that TV News
such as 60 Minutes or 20/20 should investigate. I would love to see
some solid investigative reporting done on the topic of international
schools. There are far too many international schools that get away
with unfair hiring practices as they are not held accountable.
Dear International Schools Review,
Love the web site and have been spreading the word. Thanks!
As a teacher who is looking to teach overseas in an international school
I greatly value this website......Thanks
Hello International Schools Review,
I just wanted to thank you for helping me find a great position. At
the last conference I had three job offers. Reading what other teachers
had to say about these schools helped me to pick the best school for
me. I would be completely bummed next school year if I had not read
your reviews and chosen one of the other two schools. Man, they sound
like disasters. Thanks for making this site. I'll send you an updated
review of the school after I'm there for a while. I'm sure it will
be very positive. Thanks again. Thank you for your time and the courage
to begin this venue.
