Open Quote The curriculum and teaching are outdated and very traditional. Not much room for kids to be creative and innovate. I don’t believe the students are reaching their full potential academically. Other than that, it seems to be a friendly environment for the kids. 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.
