Open Quote Quartz Hill is an amazing school! We have been enrolled here for three years and have always had excellent teachers. The principal is so caring about the students and knows almost all of them by name. Close Quote

Open Quote This school is about money. If you do not give money you will be shunned and looked down upon. My son has a disability but has done very well and graduated kindergarten. This school says that he can not come back for no reason at all. Can we say discrimination. Close Quote

Open Quote The principal lied to us (in writing). We later learned the truth of the matter from another school official. I am very disappointed! Close Quote

Open Quote The teachers are unprofessionial.one started the whole class booing my son which made him cry. The principal is horriable. I filed a formal complaint on him. Worst school my kids hate it and the drop off and pick up is terriable. I'm taking my kids out and moving them to a differant school 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.
