What school directors said about Quito

Patricia de Ribadeneira

Quito is a very safe city, very friendly and easy to know, it has all the facilities of modern life, but it also has the charm of its colonial part, that’s why it is a World Heritage city. It is also in the center of all the tourist regions that can be visited in the country.

Our teacher Adriana is great! And the school is very flexible, because we couldn't attend for 3 days due to an incident, they rescheduled us so we could make up the 3 days. And there are fresh pastries every day during break and even cakes for birthdays.
