  • I am a sixth grade student there and i think it is a great school. The teachers are more like your friends and you call them by their firt names. You go on international trips and it goes from preschool to 9th grade. It is great if you have alot of money. but the subjects are really fun and going to school is a blast! Instead of a cafeteria we have a cafe with gourmet food. AWESOME SCHOOL!
