Open Quote Teachers amazing however the front staff is horrible and should not even be aloud to be in a school, my son was hit multiple times in the head and the did nothing because it was on his way to school and then didn't bother to call me till 3 pm and tell me my son had been in the nurses office all day due to it. This school is honestly one of the worst school's in Phoenix. 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.
