Open Quote Horrid school. The teachers are very lazy and the STEM teacher has no idea how to work the software and computer programs: only the kids do and so he asks them for help all the time. No "aerospace" learning here...just basic school with a "robotics program and team". THEIR IS NO STEM FOCUS HERE. Kids can't go on the grass field a bunch of times to play because of "safety reasons". Books are fairly new but hardly are ever used. Classes are small and teachers waste time with worksheets and jokes. Don't make the mistake of attending this place: you will regret it for sure. 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.
