Open Quote Bullying was very frequent. Very poor place for developmental and academic processes Close Quote


by a parent
Tuesday, August 2, 2016

Open Quote Not a bad school at all if your child is average. If he or she needs help, though, too bad. Learning challenges? Need learning support? Gifted? ADHD? Tough cookies. The administration doesn't care if your child falls through the cracks. 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.
