Open Quote One of the Best Schools in PV District for Self Contained Gifted Programs. My Son Studied from 1-4th Grade. Nice Secure Campus, Friendly and Highly Efficient Teachers , Administrative and Assisting staff, Nice library, Good Emphasis on Sports , Music , Art. Gifted Teachers like Ms Leichner (3-4 Grades), Robinson (Gifted K) are so passionate and efficient in their fields, our children are fortunate to have then as teachers. Ms Liechner goes extra mile always and make sure her students take up Math and English tests that are conducted at national level.

Most Important this school provides a warm and Friendly atmosphere with a highly competitive and technology assisted environment. 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.
