Other comments
There are two problems that must be corrected: 1) teachers, despite the same content, are totally different, generating a great discomfort in classes key to their learning. In my case, I had 3 teachers in one month in elective classes. What my teacher should have been from the beginning, he taught me only last week. And the latter, who would be the teacher, was the one I liked the most. 2) Teachers training, along with their main teacher, in my case 1 week with Prof. Nathan, Main Class, made the class fall quality, causing much dissatisfaction. Teacher training cases should be reviewed so they do not mess up who really wants to learn.

The organisation of the books is horrible. If you level up, you have to buy a new book and its very expensive and stupid.

Positive aspects of school
They give you the option to change your class if you need a teacher with a different style of teaching, classes are playful and very motivating to me, that as a teacher I am is fundamental. They provide an appropiate variety of electives to deepen your skills.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
There are many bad experiences regarding accommodation, books are quite expensive and sometimes when you do the diagnostic evaluation you do not stay at the appropriate level, it is better to wait until the first test to see your real level.
