Finding my first family here in EC San Diego is something I'll always feel grateful for. Not only was I taught more about the language by one of the most amazing group of teachers, but I was taught more about the world we live in. The cultural diversity and global awareness I've been exposed to is a privileged experience that can never be replaced. I left the doors of EC with no regrets and a new-found excitement for whatever comes next.

Really good school! Very friendly & skilled teachers, good education level and maybe the best location to combine studying and enjoyment. Check out Bay Point Apartments for housing. My heart loves San Diego more than any other places in world, I miss it a lot ❤️

    I came to San Diego because I heard about the great weather and nice people. At the school, we have a lot of interesting conversations in the classroom and we can hang out with the teachers during the activities. I will not forget all my teachers and friends that I made while studying here.

    All of teachers are so kind and I love them. They always care for students. My favorite activity was Beach Volleyball and I love Halloween!! It was my first time to enjoy Halloween in the USA because in my country Halloween is not popular culture.
