Open Quote PLEASE BEWARE! Unless your child is a fighter.... this school is dangerous! There are constant fights and the bullying is out of control. The principal tries to act like it doesn't exist there and demands that she not be questioned about how she runs the school. When my kids started there I loved the school but since the new administration, it is so downhill. The school is out of control and no one helps the kids when they report things like name calling or physical abuse they are receiving from other kids. I saw another review online that said this school was like a gladiator yard and that pretty much sums it up. This school is sick and will only get worse because no one is responding to the complaints. Please get a waiver for your child to go to school somewhere else.! Close Quote

Open Quote Unfortunately, this school used to be one of the top schools for a student to be at. At this point, the students run the school. Administrators are no where to be found and don't want to deal with discipline. The teachers are constantly having to use classroom management throughout the day and this is taking much needed time away from the teaching of the students. The teachers are over-worked and miserable. Finally, the administrator is under-qualified and should not be in this position. 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.
