Open Quote This school was a disappointment to us and our child. Despite being an arts school that admits students purely based on talent, there is a tremendous emphasis on being an academic over-achiever. When our child started to struggle second semester, his main arts teacher didn't appear to care. Emails were never answered. We expected much more from a school of this small size and supposed focus on the arts. 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.
