Open Quote If I could leave a half of a star for this school, I would. I enrolled my kids in this school because of their professed excelled academic offerings. I took them out of the school after not even finishing one full academic year. It is also extremely expensive if you expect your child to participate in any after school activities or sports, and they do not have a band or orchestra program. And by expensive I mean thousands of dollars. Stick with Gilbert Public Schools. They are much better academically, for extra-curricular activities, and for the social and emotional needs of your child! Close Quote

Open Quote School claims safety is their #1 priority but it most definitely is not me along with 7 other families I know are leaving due to the administrators inability to keep children safe. Also their communication is admittedly poor. Go elsewhere. Close Quote

Open Quote We have been at STLC for two years and have been continually hopeful, but constantly disappointed. We hoped that the school would grow (it has almost doubled) and settle into a nice model with the needs of the students as a priority. That is not the case. The majority of teachers are doing the best they can and truly care about the kids, but the administration is clearly more focused on the business side of running the school rather than nurturing their founding vision. The parent involvement at this school is remarkable and the school would not be at all successful were it not for them. There is no certified school nurse, and the discipline policy is in need of work. Many of the after school clubs are taught by overworked teachers and parents. Promised programs like foreign languages and individualized learning have never truly occurred. We will be taking our children to another school next year. 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.
