How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

The school is impressive from outside. Its landscape and soccer field are very nice.

Nothing. The teacher keep saying that this the way they do it in UAS!

Be aware that the quality of teaching depends solely on the teacher and the group of students present in a certain level. Some teachers are very professional and caring. Others seem to be always stunned by the students inadequate skills! However, there is no action plan to find out the reasons behind this mediocrity and what to do to help students perform better. Teachers do not attribute a great importance to parents concerns since the administration supports the teachers 99% of the time.
