Open Quote This school is an empty shell. My daughter came here for two years as a girl scout and thought it was the greatest. Then we had to move, so we moved to where we could have her attend Ronald Reagan. Beautiful campus, but the staff is lacking. There are alot of young unexperienced teachers. The parent teacher conference is run by the student. My daughter has always been a happy kid, liking school. All ended since September. 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.
