Open Quote I had to take my daughter from this school she's a good student and has never had a bad mark as a student or a referral. The school has quite a few disciplinary problems. And she did not feel comfortable there as a young african american girl trying to do well.. 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.
