Open Quote My child attended this school for one year. We gave the charter school movement a chance. In that year the school was high on recruiting with year round orientations giving a sales pitch of the school's innovative programs. What they don't reveal is the school's low academic performance of 2 since its establishment. In that year, the administration's application of its own handbook rules and regulations to educationally aid the student was poor. I would not waste my time with this school and direct parents to an impressive Middle College High School with a rating of 10 since its establishment in Stockton Ca. They deserve the vote of funds alloted to your child in education taxes. I hope my rating helps other parents. 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.
