    Diversity is the best thing about it. Students who attend CATS are intersting and ambitious young people. I had an amazing time making friends. Some of the teachers are truly great, they are ready to go above and beyond to help students achieve their goals. On the other hand, there are some teachers who are really unkind and unhelpful. The principle and the student affairs departnment, as well as most of other saff including dorm parents is horrific. They are people who are having personal issues and are not healthy for school environment. Of course, there are exceptions. I personaly had a great dorm parent, and I wish other students can get the same experience.
    As an"Day Student" as it is called in my school meaning that I dont board at the school rather I live near by and commute every day, I wouldnt rate the school as amazing from my perspective. The school pays no attention to students who live outside school. The school provides no help for us to get accustomed to the school atmosphere. Its hard to make friends with foreigners because since your kind of considered an outsider and not fully emerged and intermingled with the other countries in this school its hard to break through the language barrier and the school provides little to no way for us day students connect with all these people from other countries which is why I attended this school to become more culturally diverse by being around and making friends from different countries, however its hard to do so when the school provides little opportunities to connect with them.
