If I had more time, I would tell you so much more. You should come around yourself. You may just find exactly what you are looking for. If I known it would be such fun, I would have come ages ago. What I like most about the HS is the opportunity to learn in such a tolerant and multi-cultural environment.

And that’s what a good school is all about, isn’t it?
