Open Quote I was a former student here a few years ago. Most teachers here don't care about any of the students. I witnessed bullying and the teachers did not do anything about it. The school only cares about their reputation and not their students. Close Quote

Open Quote My child has been the victim of multiple, racially motivated harrassments, assaults, and beatings at this school.

When concerns were expressed to the principal, the reply was that we can move out of the school.

STAY AWAY from this place. Under its current management, violent children are protected and the victims penalized. 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.
