Nothing. You get there you managed to survived. But I have to say that my children classmates really try and did a great effort to make them feel comfortable..
How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?
No social activities at all and only to reunions a year with teachers. Really poor organized. You will be lucky if you can speak a couple of minutes with each teacher. "Prepa" School (high school) does not care at all about. children and parents have nothing to say. It is really disappointing. However, Secondary (middle school) is much better thank you to its director (Maria Junco) She listens to you and always try to help.
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
Even though my children are happy here, I do not recommend this school. Too rigid, too old school. Not good teachers.
