What our students said about Whistler

Rating: 5/5


Whistler and the surrounding areas are like a luxury resort. Their facilities and the area looks like are obviously expensive zones which is why the price is not always the best. if you go there is because of the ski so if you take this into account you can assume the cost.

4.0 | 1 review

Teachers and staff from the school in general were very concerned about the students and not only in the academic sense, but they also tried to offer recreational activities suited to the tastes of each one.
I loved to stay in Whistler Tamwood and I would repeat it without any doubt if it were not because there are many more places in the world I want to visit.
