Les professeurs sont très gentils, ils donnent souvent des devoirs à faire ke week-end mais c'est assez rapide donc ça permet de profiter du week-end. Des sorties scolaires sont souvent organisées le vendredi matin, elles sont vraiment bien ! La mère de famille est vraiment adorable, elle cuisine très très bien et lance des discussions.Cependant, il fait très froid dans la maison.
