Your team was extremely supportive and, above all, flexible with our application needs. We were impressed with the warmth and understanding of your team from the onset. Both were instrumental in our decision to apply to AOSR, despite the school being a fair distance from our home. The commute pales in comparison to what the school has to offer our daughter. Thank you.

Sabine has been outstanding in providing information to my family, and also very caring and always available. Thank you Sabine, you made our transition feel smooth.

The Admissions Office, in particular Ms. Neumann, was extremely helpful, friendly and professional.  We were assisted all the way through, from the very beginning all the way through the first day of school.

I thought Sabine was fantastic - reassuring, calm and extremely supportive throughout. I found everything so perfect and simple.
