Open Quote This school has only improved and exceeded my expectations in the last few years.
Since Mr.Steve Gebhart began his leadership has brought this school to the next level. Dana is now a Steam Magnet and the students are excelling. I am a proud parent and highly recommend this school to all students in this area. Close Quote

Open Quote I had to pull my child out of the school due to bullying issues. The bullying took place in the classroom. Teachers are abrasive and just dont' care. This school is horrible. 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.
