Open Quote My family is thrilled to be part of such a fantastic community. Teachers, staff and parents are committed to making our school a great environment for our children. There's room for improvement of course - there always is. As a parent I would love to see more focus on the kids that are behind and expansion on development for kids that exceed standards and less emphasis on CSAP - it's a baseline and we all want to do well, but RELAX!

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.
