My name is Artem Postnikov, I am 14 years old. I now live in Russia, but I studied for 3 years in Osceola Elementary school. Those were the best three years of school in my life. Only now that I study in Russia, now that I know what it's like to have biased or prejudiced teachers, now that I know what it's like to do homework all night, now that I know what it's like to completely not understand a subject and feel alone because no one will properly explain it to you, now that I know what it's like to go to school on Saturday and do homework on Sunday, now that I know what it's like to hate every little piece of school, and anticipate everyday of it with dread, only now I understand that I should not have taken Osceola elementary school for granted. In Osceola you will find anything that a perfect school requires to be perfect: friendly and forgiving staff and teachers, a great balance between too much school and homework, and not enough; plenty of great extra activities that your child will no doubt enjoy, latest tech to make learning easier and more fun, a great cafeteria, and an atmosphere... An atmosphere in which your child will thrive, in which your child will feel special, in which your child will become better, stronger, smarter, and an overall good, honest person...An atmosphere which other schools can only hope to achieve.
