Open Quote Half the staff does not seem to care about student success or even safety. Bullying is rampant. Watched my child go from an A-B student to failing and could not get the staff to step up to the plate to stop the bullying. Close Quote

Open Quote I recommend to all parents to NOT put their child in this school. I hate this school very much, and some teachers there are just awful. This school is not-disciplined and has very low CST test scores. I would definitely rate this school 1 star, this is the rating it deserves.I wish this school never existed. There are many fights, low culture, and poor manners from many students on campus. Half of the teachers should not be teachers there at all. This school definently disappoints me. 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.
