Open Quote What a horrible school. The students there lack discipline and are some of the worst bullies ever. My daughter is constantly harassed by some of the female students and the parents are worse! They encourage this bad behavior and could care less if their kids hurt other kids. The staff attempts to help with no avail. My daughter's education is suffering and the actions the staff takes to help is minimal. Please be careful if you plan to enroll you student here.

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.
