Windermere Preparatory School reviews

Victoria K.

The child has been studying at this school for many years - they started with primary classes, when they themselves lived in the US (by the work of the spouse), then moved to the middle classes and study there. School like, when changing their place of residence they decided not to translate, just change to a boarding house (to live and study on the same territory).

Beautiful high-quality, modern school. As an indicator, we note that even a child is small (well, there, 7-8-9 years) asked the school not to change, they say, they like, the teachers are good and friends have already started. And this is in view of the fact that for him, English is not native and we ourselves are not Americans! He was so quick that they were given a miracle. Now, of course, there is no problem with the language, and it's used to the education system, although it becomes more difficult to study every year, the workload is getting closer to the graduation classes. But we do not complain - most likely, we will receive higher education in America too, so we need to prepare in the best way, to strain all our forces.

The solid pluses (well, except for the price, but all the "private traders" bite abroad), good emotions and memories from the son. School is recommended.

Natalia and Dmitry Ivanov

Originally, we wanted to make a birthday present for our son Daniil (15 years old). He is very fond of languages ​​(especially English), but the conditions for learning the language in our environment are, of course, weak.

And in general, our system of education in linguistics is not strong. Because they decided to send him to the US for the first time in the camp for a month, and then, when they figured out that he was going to have a year in private school, he was sent to the school Windermere , and it seems they were not mistaken. Daniel really likes it. When he last talked on skype, he boasted that the classes are very small, many circles and extracurricular activities, and American guys are interesting and very friendly. He said that he would like to finish school there. Although it is difficult to please him.

Leonid and Angela Korotkov

We visited our son at school in the USA. We thank Smapse for helping us organize the trip.

Sam did not have to book tickets, suffer with the filling of visa documents, look for housing. The trip was a success, we were satisfied with the conditions of our son's training. He himself said that he does not intend to return. Thanks again Smapse for the chance for the child to see the cherished America.
