Detailed Ratings

What I liked best about the school is the cultural diversity of students and representatives of many cultures from many nations. Sitting in a classroom setting where 90% of the student populations speaks another language other than English is truly amazing. It allows others to recognize the differences of others and elevates a total acceptance of culture, language, and learning. This in of itself is worth a most valuable experience that will prepare individuals to go out and merge into communities, peoples, and hopes of securing jobs where one can make a difference!
