Open Quote The teachers are horrible at this school. They don't teach the kids and expect parents to pickup for their slack. They don't even give homework related to what they are testing and expect the kids to know everything. In addition, the administrators are a joke! They don't care about the students growth and well being. They hinder and prevent children from having extracurricular activities as well. Their after school program also sucks because they lock your kids in like it is a prison and you CANNOT pick up before 6pm. The school is run like a GERMAN camp. 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.
