Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Even if you wear a jacket, you may feel cold in a classroom. A school library was always locked. Due to the weather, a number of the participants, or other reasons, the school sometimes cancels the activities.
Teachers and staff willing to learn, advise and support, even if the issues are not school related.
