Open Quote I am not pleased with the way this school is run or the way they treat our children. I will be sending my child elsewhere, and I suggest other parents not be mislead by their high academic scores. The high scores are at the expense of the confidence of our children. To them, scores matter more than being an encouragement to the kids. 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.
