Open Quote Every teacher there does not care about the student's grade and they never do anything about it. They always treat the poor students and the average ones bad and the teachers's knowledge is really bad. NO SCHOOL SPIRIT at all. Less security and full of bad teachers that don't know how to teach nor know how to make the student feel good about himself in class. Every teacher and staff there doesn't want to listen to the student's ideas and don't care about them and never try to help the students out when they have bad grades in class.
I would want to all the new students to not go to this school as you can see how bad they are. If your a parent please don't let your child get to this school.
Thank you Close Quote

Open Quote Staff is unprofessional and condescending. My overall experience with this school is poor at best.They overlook students welfare for poor policy. Why offer a class change form if its the school policy to deny the change? 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.
