Open Quote Our PreK-8th Grade school has three core values: high academic achievement (as evidenced by our test scores, fabulous teachers, and high parent involvement), creative culture (exemplified by our strong Visual and Performing Arts Programs), and a safe and nurturing environment (which our teachers, staff, and parents work together to provide). Our school not only values academics, but also recognizes the importance of enriching the academic experience of our students with monthly assemblies in which all elementary students are exposed to song, drama, instrumental music, and dance. Middle School students are able to expand their interests further in specific areas through enrichment classes.

As state and federal funding has dwindled in recent years, this school has made up for these shortfalls through a strong Annual Fund and high volunteerism. Walk our halls and you will find well-trained volunteers assisting teachers with instruction in classrooms. Community is fostered and built through monthly PTA extracurricular events, including a Fall Festival, Middle School Dances, Father-Daughter Dance, and Mother-Son Game Night, among others. Likewise, our school Annual Fund pays for approximately half of our discretionary funds budget including providing instructional, behavioral, health and recreational aides, arts specialists, and much more.

When looking at our API ranking, be aware that the score is for both an elementary campus and a middle school campus, which are a few blocks apart. 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.
