    I love Awty, there are lots of programs, i really like the teachers, and sports are actually pretty fun! Take THAT from someone who doesn't really like sports. Also, Awty has pretty great food! It's not one of those schools that takes your leftovers and boils it for stew that you EAT. They actually have really great chefs who cook this AWESOME food, and really great desserts! For example, I just got back from school and we had this great pasta with chocolate pudding with oreos and whipped cream for dessert! They also give you great snacks and allow you to bring your own from home. They have healthy stuff like bananas and apples, today we got bananas, but they also have things like popcorn and goldfish. Awty really is the best school i have been in so far! Oh, and also, I get lots of friends there! No one is racist, because everyone is from everywhere. In my class there are people from egypt, india, columbia, england, france, argentina, china, phillipines, and lebanon! SO COOL!!

    The Awty international school is an excellent k-12 institution. At Awty, there is great diversity in students from all over the world who can freely share their culture with their classmates and around the school. The administration is excellent and working and communicating with students, and because of this, there is an excellent range of clubs and student-run activities throughout the year. The college counseling and college prep are top-notch. Through the IB curriculum, each student gains and strong educational background but also learns how to be more organized and a better global citizen.
    I love Awty because it teaches children the importance of study habits and time management while also helping you develop into a full rounded student. Awty teaches two years ahead, allowing children to have a more advanced education. In addition to Awty being rich in academics, it is also a safe space for all ethnicities. It teaches you about different cultures and how to respect their traditions and beliefs. Awty helps you learn the true meaning of diversity through special events, such as the International Festival, where booths that represent different countries discuss their cultures and traditions and allow you to experience a part of it with them. Even though, it is known for its diversity and advanced academics, it is well- known for the variety of languages. I am currently a trilingual student, fluent in Spanish, French, and English. I hope this helps give insight to what a great school Awty is.
