I liked Solex. convenient location in the heart of the city. convenient schedule. We studied four days a week. good teachers. but like everywhere - the teachers can be just "good", and can be "wow". Here in school was a "wow" one, just divine teacher. I attended his lessons in any weather and in any mood. We took a memory photo☺️ and now chat sometimes. What about knowledge - I can't say that I became much cleverer, although after the test I was identified to the group of high advanced. in the end by results of the final exams, I was the best in the group. perhaps I can thank St. Petersburg State University, where I study, because I've already had some knowledge) Solex School in Chicago itself is very good. cozy spacious classrooms, everything is good from the toilets to the free wi-fi. There were computer classes for doing exercises quickly and checked them by himself at once. There were a lot of homework, but it's good. A a couple of times there were lessons in the park. but we didn't just sit and chat, but studied. 1-2 times a week there were after-school events- cinema, concerts, shows, sporting events (for a fee, if the event is paid), everyone just gathered and went), what else to say, I do not know. I enjoyed it. I do not regret. a bunch of impressions, a bunch of photos. Chicago - one of the best cities in which I was ❤️
