Open Quote This high school experience has opened up many doors for my peers and I. Many of us will be graduating with AAs of ASs by the time we graduate high school. I could not imagine having gone anywhere else for my college preparatory education! The environment is very personalized and friendly. This is the warmest school community I have even had the privilege of participating in. 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.
