"I enjoyed the many activities offered at the school. I went canoeing, surfing, hiking, and swimming with dolphins and sharks. Skydiving was my favorite and I want to do it again before I leave. The teachers are sensitive and will explain things to the student. I really improved my English and it’s great to relax at the beach after school." - Cheng Chih, Taiwan.
