The way to and from school on the beach was great. It's really beautiful.
If someone doesn't feel comfortable at the school, just let them out of the contract. In other schools, this is possible and it helps everyone. Money is important but not always. The school looks like it's in the 90s and is no longer up to date.

All the staff was very friendly and eager to help.
The level among my classmates was too divergent. The teacher focused too much on the weakest in the class. I raised that issue and it got better then.
