Open Quote The school was very different prior to the new administration that came with the 2019/2020 school year. The principal and vice principal have made changes and to be honest, the whole vibe of the school is different. The community is scratching their heads as to why they removed our beloved Mr Bogle and gave us a principal and vice principal who lack the skills needed to create a warm and inviting elementary school community. We are hoping to find an alternative solution next year. We will not be back. 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.
