I've been in Mahanay since pre-kindergarten. However, I didn't want to leave the school because there were nice teachers. Sadly, in 2019, I had to leave. (I was in 4th grade at the time) Even though I had a few strict teachers, they still showed a somewhat nice side as well. Fortunately, I'll remember my teachers, coaches, and the school staff while I'm in intermediate, middle, high, college, and university. Well, I'll try to at least. By the way, their service is amazing.
