Open Quote They allow sexual abuse and bullying on their premises. They have a history of saying children are at the school when they are absent, allowing children too young to be admitted into the school, leaving children unattended in classrooms and outside for long periods of time (which is illegal).

Open Quote Not happy with grading system.Our 2 grade kid went from honor roll to fail in 3 weeks. A substitute teacher was sent in when they let their teacher go 3 weeks before school ended. Then neglected to tell us of the drastically different scholastic changes to my son. How cab a child go from honors every semester to fail in 3 weeks? 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.
