Open Quote Superb school!
My child really enjoyed 5th Grade Mathematics due to the teacher who really took the time to make her WORK! Mr. Culpepper challenged my daughter throughout the entire year, which I feel is needed for children to be successful for tomorrows workplace. If you have a bright child looking for a challenge enroll in Mr. Culpepper's math class, but be ready to WORK!

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.
