“I love this course (referring to AB English). I spent most of my life being a mainstreamed student. Actually in CPU it was a lot more convenient than when I was in elementary and high school. Everybody at CPU was so accommodating. The teachers understood my situation and they really got out of their way just to proved me my needs and they did not complain at all. They did not consider me a burden”
