Open Quote I love this school. The staff is very professional, organized and skilled. The school is in a very safe area with ample parental support and involvement. The school offers a variety of academic choices and extra curricular activities. The music and band program is one of the best programs around. It's been an incredible experience for my child over the last six years and he's looking forward to his third year in High School Band. I can't say enough about the eight year commitment to the program that starts in fifth grade and continues all the through twelfth grade. I will have to say that I believe much of the success comes from the immense teamwork of, not only the staff, but parents and students as well. However, I truly believe that the success of the Middle School Band Instructor, Mr. Green, and his ability to make learning enjoyable, is mostly responsible for the student's continuing commitment to the program.

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.
