Open Quote I am disappointed in this school, it seems that a very few are heard here, the school has allot of bullies and no one seems to care, the ranking is low and again no seems to care and secondary it seems to cater to the Spanish speaking community only, all the programs they have are based on Spanish culture and the rest of the students seem to be forgotten, you can't ever get anyone to respond to you with concerns the school board really needs to check in on this school and how it is operated.

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.
