Open Quote Each year we are making progress regardless of the limitations.
The staff does whatever is necessary to help all kids and even parents to learn and be successful. We teach the whole child and push them to improve. We are working hard to close learning gaps. Close Quote

Open Quote Although this school does not rate high in test scores, the personnel at the school work over and beyond to help students, parents, and families. They truly love their kids and provide before, during, and after school support to students in reading and math.
Unfortunately, lots of kids from outside the community has overwhelmed it within the last four years and has caused a culture and climate shift to the school. 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.
