Our partner school is established in a modern building on the waterfront, in Seattle City Centre. Amenities include 19 classrooms equipped with interactive whiteboards and audio-visual facilities, a multimedia room with learning software, free-access computers and a library offering videos, audio books and learning materials. The student lounge is a place where students from all over the world can socialise and relax while having access to vending machines for snacks and drinks, refrigerators, microwave ovens and TV.
