What impressed you positively?

"Student camraderie. Since they're a small class, they're all cooperative with each other. It's a very laid-back environment. My hosts and their friends came over the night before to work on a PBL set together. I was observing a class before my interview, and when there was a small break, students were very friendly and turned to me and another interviewee and asked us if we had any questions. Most areas in the school have wireless capabilities." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I had a good experience there. I stayed with a host the night before and she said, with the small class size, it's just like high school, except everyone's motivated to work and do well and work together. It was a short interview day (my interview was at 10:45am and the day was done at about 1:30). My interviewer, according to my hosts, was a really sweet, laid back guy, and he was, but he did ask me some tough questions, especially for my first interview. I think i managed to answer them satisfactorily though." Report Response
