Open Quote The district has placed a new principal at the school starting the "14-'15 school year. She turned her last school from a D to an A rated school.The upgrades are still being added with new playground equipment to be installed over the summer.
I like the community feel and the small class sizes. We are proud to see our children learn and grow with other children that are improving their lives through the caring staff. Close Quote

Open Quote My children 2nd grade and kindergarten have just started the '13-'14 school year at Aire Libre. They have made major upgrades to the school over the summer. They have a very low teacher turnover rate and nice smaller class sizes. Close Quote

Open Quote Lack of integrity, lack of compassion, lack of leadership.

Very poor school, unorganized and very unprofessional. 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.
