Open Quote The school administrator is non-responsive and appears detached from parents and students which seems to be a trend that then is expanded to the remainder of the staff. Teachers overall support is mediocre. It's not my favorite school due mostly to the lack of communication which appears to be an afterthought most of the time. The information needed for children to succeed needs to flow to and from parents in a pleasant and helpful manner. This school appears to have some real problems with communication of important!!!!! information in a timely manner from the very beginning of the school year to the end.This is not an opinion. It is from talking to parents and listening to the students. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
