Thank you Tatiana!

We study at one of the best American schools in Austria. How did this happen?

Two years ago, parents let us go with a group from the gymnasium, go on a winter vacation to Europe. Visited several countries: Poland, Germany, Austria. In the latter very much: snow mountains, everything is well maintained, the monuments and burial places of our soldiers are respectfully guarded. They began to "squash" their parents. We chose a school together with a friend - on the site of the SMAPS everything is very sensibly painted, well done. We are more and more like it here, teaching is conducted by English teachers from Canada and the USA. Disciplines to choose from: we focused on natural sciences (biology, chemistry). Groups are quite small - from 6 people! So an individual approach is provided. Our school is at the foot of the Alps, beauty! With meals, rest, accommodation - everything is fine, "full" board :)
