Open Quote Worst school I've ever sent my children too. The staff will make you a 102 promises, only to keep one. If your child is on an IEP or you have a special needs student, expect for them to be placed in a room and given sheets to color everyday while the school collects the tax credit. They treat these children horribly and the Pricipals there clearly get paid to much for what they actually do which is nothing!! 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.
