Open Quote This school is one of kind. I am a certified teacher now but I student taught at this school. I have yet to find a school as incredible as this one. The staff are dedicated, positive, and devoted to their students and school. The principal, Dr. Randy Watkins, is supportive and enthusiastic about his school. The belief of success he holds in his staff and students affect the atmosphere of the school and it spurs all to try their best. You can feel it as soon as you enter the school. They dream big and work hard. 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.
