School Reviews

I think Andrews Osborne is a good school - a very beautiful campus, the headmaster and teachers are nice and hardworking people. My daughter studies there, she has met good teachers, the school are very friendly to Chinese students, teachers are willing to help all the time. Over years the school has better and better college result. Well I used to be concerned that there are more Chinese students than other high schools, but from my experience, our children really need friends when they are away from their home and their country, and more Chinese students means they get more friends easily, at least they speak same language. I hope AOA will do better and better in the future! Go AOA!
