Open Quote I am an Alumni and I am so proud to be sending my kids here! Staff is amazing and they really take the time to help each student. Super clean and tucked away in a great neighborhood. Close Quote

Open Quote I think that this school is absolutely FANTASTIC!

Students are learning well. I should know my daughter has excelled since she has been there.

The teachers are professional and at the same care about each individual student.

Their recognition programs promote continued success.

The PTA is inviting, involved and active.

Lastly, but a very big point, is that the school is safe!

I should also point out that I love the big windows in the classrooms, allowing the children some sense of weather and life. I don't want my child to be a mushroom, stuck in a stuffy windowless room! 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.
