What impressed you positively?

"The students seemed pretty happy to be there. The clubs are apparently active and do a lot of stuff, including service work and Spanish training. The building is actually pretty nice once you get inside, and they've got lots of room to grow (they're only using about half of it)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?
