Student Anne-Maria Matejas | They understand me here

Student Anne-Maria Matejas | They understand me here
Anne-Maria Matejas is a member of Mensa. She already had an individual study plan at her elementary school and passed a number of subjects with schoolmates several years older. When she was only ten, she left her home for a boarding school some 380 kilometers away. Her first weeks there were not at all easy; she missed her family. In spite of that, when back at home every weekend, she enthusiastically told her parents how happy she was at the Open Gate grammar school in Babice, central Bohemia.
