Open Quote My daughter felt safe and loved by her teachers and friends in middle school. She was also challenged ever day by her studies. Here is a quote from after her second day in 8th grade, "Mom, I can't believe how well my teachers can teach!" I would recommend this school to anyone. 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.
