My experience there was one quite unique and unforgettable. From the amazing teachers to the advanced knowledge the faculty have instilled in my brain, it brings a sense of sad nostalgia to me when I look back upon this institution, as I will most likely never have a journey like I did during my three years here.
It's a good school with caring teachers and lots of extracurricular activities. It would be nice if there was more resources for high schoool admission tests such as the specialized high school exam.
