Open Quote The School has experienced a 60 turnover in instructors during the past two years. The middle school education has deteriorated greatly in the past two years to the point where a majority of students have chosen not to return. 3rd principal in last 4 years will soon start. Major turnaround is needed. Close Quote

Open Quote I found that the teachers in the school are very good, genuinely care about students, and want the best for their students.

The administration receives poor marks, though. They fail to follow their own policies when it comes to discipline. They have a 5 step process for discipline, with communication to parents in all steps. My child came home with a suspension notice one day, with a letter stating that there have been repeated and ongoing issues. None of those repeated and ongoing issues were ever brought to my attention. As parents, we easily could have done our job to mold our child's behavior, but were not given that opportunity. When asked about the repeated and ongoing issues, the administration was unable to provide any information and instead stated the they did not have to provide any information due to a FERPA law. So we are left wondering what those issues were, or if they even happened. My child doesn't go to that school anymore because I don't feel like I can trust the administration. 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.
