Karpov Dmitry, Nikolai Koltsov, 16 years old, St. Petersburg. George's School Cologne

My friend and I studied for 2 years in Germany, at a private school. George's School Cologne, the city of Cologne. They chose it together with their parents, but they were guided by the material of the site of SMAPS, well done by its authors!

Have spread everything "on the shelf" Site managers are always ready to answer any interesting question. Attracted is that the school has a high rating "and all the conditions for a comfortable study." Time flew simply imperceptibly. We are proud that the children of 40 nationalities study at school, but the atmosphere here is family. We get not only a solid academic education, but also attend electives, we are engaged in a chess circle, we study Spanish in parallel. Time to relax a little, but in plans we have - tourism.

Timothy Trushin, daughter of Sveta, St. George's School Cologne

The Cologne school, chosen on the recommendation of Smapse, liked the principles of teaching children:

already in high school (13 years) a lot of time is devoted to self-preparation, projects, independent research with the writing of abstracts. The load is large, but effective. Extra plus of the school is an extra-curricular program. The daughter professionally engaged in vocal.

School - St. George's School (St. George's SCHOOL)

The first time we visited Switzerland on tour tour 4 years ago, the country fascinated us! And our (then 11-year-old daughter) Natasha announced her passionate desire to study here. Our girl was independent, she studied perfectly, and we decided to get up and let her go to school. Consulted on the Internet and came out very well on the site of SMAPS. With his staff found out everything that was necessary for themselves, they chose the school St. George School. Now the daughter is studying and very successful. We visited it, liked all the conditions of life: serious study, comfortable living, skillfully organized rest. And, most importantly, you can hope for life prospects. The daughter is delighted that the school stands on the shore of the Geneva lake, with beautiful views of the Alps from the windows. Here she began to write poetry and went deep into the study of humanitarian subjects.
