Open Quote This school is great if your kid can learn very independently. Most of the teachers are great. But if your kid is in the bottom 20%, expect to pay a tutor. They will lie through their teeth to avoid providing special education for kids with specific learning disabilities. 750+ students and not a single dyslexic kid? Yeah, right. 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.
