Open Quote Awful school. Lazy principal who ruined the school's API. Compare APIs over the last 10yrs from 2007-2017. Websites describe this school as low low performing. Yet liars who are chummy with the principal posted great reviews about the school. What normal person would post positive reviews when the school is clearly failing at state level, district level, and world level? These people must not care about their child's education if they are calling a school that ranks #2 a great school. The district doesn't care about the kids in this district since they were ignorant enough to keep this poor leader. Send your child elsewhere. 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.
