Open Quote My oldest daughter just finished kindergarten here and we could not be happier with the progress she made this year. The jump she made academically was amazing, even she felt good with her success! We have to deal with food allergies and asthma with her and the staff here is fantastic. They are all so easy to deal with and I'm comfortable and confident that they can handle anything that might happen. 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.
