Open Quote This school make you feel so unwelcome. You are not allowed to view your child's class freely at any time. So education is not a concern for the teachers. You need a pass just to step on their grass or even pick your child up after school and so much more to say about that school. If I had my way I would go back to zaharis. Now that's a school.

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.
