Additional information
Positive aspects of school
The classroom on the deck thats due to the hillside, resided mid height among the trees with may visiting birds and butterflies was outstanding. The teacher was very good in observing what we knew and did not know, and adapting the lessons accordingly. Very impressive.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
With four hours a day it is hard to do any sightseeing beyond the school using public transportation, so if that is a desire, a rental car is a necessity.
Other comments
The evening events with the local community were great.
