What was your high school/secondary school like? 
Hinkson was a small (250 students K-12) private, international Christian school opened by some missionaries 20 years ago. It had a very homey and welcoming environment. Teachers and students had almost friend-like relationships. It is a wonderful school. Stephen Lewis is a larger public school in contrast to HCA. It is very strong academically and has many nationalities represented there.
