Open Quote This school is good if you do not come from another country and your child doesn't have any special needs. Front office is rude, doesn't even acknowledge you are there. Teachers are very " walk on the beaten path and do not try any thing different to accommodate your child, some of them should not be even allowed to be in a classroom. I wish there was zero for the rating, I wouldn't even give them one star. 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.
