Open Quote This school is bad. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN HERE. My son - who is in special ed- was not ready for college afterwards because the teachers did not teach. When I complain to the principal no call back and too busy to see me. They need to change some staff at this school plus the school is filthy. 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.
