This is a question for the "old-timers" amongst us, but everyone who has experienced starting in a brand new international school, please comment. I may be getting an offer very soon to be part of the first cohort of teachers. There will be about 100 students to start (a high school). The problem is that there is no package info yet, there is no schooling for my children, though I've been told that they will be schooled at a "K-8 school" with a reciprocal policy (it's a high school opening and my girls are 4 and 12 years old) and the Head got his job about a month ago. Is this the norm for a school starting in September? (I'd hope not, but have to ask). So if any of you have been involved type of situation before, I'd appreciate any advice. My family is pretty adventurous and I'll enjoy the chance to shape the school, but with my girls, I'm worried about their education first and foremost, and I don't think I'll get the chance to choose where they go.
