This is such a great school Although I didn't get to finish with all of this pandemic, I enjoyed every last few seconds with all of my friends and teachers; the environment is so great; the teachers are so amazing with one-on-one student and the whole class. I love this school I wish all of my teachers can stay as my teachers for the rest of my life. I was sad that I was moving on to the next grade but I would always go one way to class in the morning or the other was just to say hi to my past teachers. I wish I would be able to stay there, but we all have to move on. This school is a 100/10
