Open Quote This school has had a major turnaround in terms of administration the past three years. Some very caring principals have been hired. The teachers have always been very good. Both our daughters are in the GATE classes and those have been tremendous in terms of teaching and rigor. 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.
