It’s been absolutely amazing from the teachers that I’ve met, to the friends I've made. I really couldn’t have asked for a better time at JFK. I never thought I was ever going to come to this school in my life, but I came. It was my dream to come to this school. This is my dream school.
I was a student at JFK for three academic years and from what I experienced, I can tell you it is a great school. The teachers are very reasonable and fair. The staff is excellent and the rules help keep the school safe and in order.
The educational experience is, I think, one of the best I've ever had in my life, but other than that, you're in a small school...you're in the middle of the Alps - it's just amazing.
Having all these connections with people all over the world, I think has helped me greatly in my life. In terms of working or even just meeting up with friends around the world. Anywhere I go, I have a friend near me.
I always tried my best in school. I have always loved this school since the first day I came to JFK. The teachers respected me, and I respected them. I will never ever forget this school in my life. This is the best school I have ever been in all my school years. I think my last year at JFK was the best school year ever.
