Open Quote This school is not safe. Constant fighting, cursing, disrespect. Admin is horrible. Kids are not taught to respect authority. Teachers have been disrespected, threatened, and even attacked (some hurt) by students. The students were caught on video and were back within a week. Many of the kids are bullied and scared to death of the kids that are not made to mind. Teachers are threatened to lose their job if they say what really goes on at the school. The general public has no idea the horrible things that go on within the walls of this school. There is no way I’d allow my children to attend here! 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.
