Open Quote Worst school ever they are a 3 out of 10 school they removed my son off campus without my permission or knowledge or permission slip what if something would happen to him then he broke his toe and they refuse to let him on school campus because he couldn't wear shoe and then when I finally got him on campus the principal wants to laugh and roll her eyes about my sons injury the principles very rude does not care about the children and has no respect for the parents or the children it's a bad school all the bad reviews are about the principal and the superintendent she doesn't care she backs up the principal and everything. Sad how these educators are. 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.
