Open Quote My son had a horrible kindergarten experience! Never would recommend this school for kindergartners especially. My son who is normally a very happy kid cried everyday going to class and night dreading the morning. Teacher won't do anything other then what is "required of her" that means she only does whats on paper and not a hug more and my sons progress dropped drastically. Changed schools and HUGE difference for the better all around. Not a good place for kindergartners in my opinion! We almost moved to another state to get away from this district all together because of our experience and the Principal was not helpful only in the end when I took things further but at that point we were done.

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.
