Open Quote If your child is gifted and talented and has no struggles-academically, then most likely your child will do fine. It is when your child struggles-academically, will there be issues. Your child may feel a bit neglected and on their own in this situation. The bullying can be a bit, and the administration staff is not good with dealing. If your child attends this school, be cautious and on top of staff. You must advocate for your child closely. 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.
