Open Quote Overall, this is an excellent school. Few disappointments-- until 8th grade science began a climate change/indoctrination section with no opposing points of view, and void of sound scientific method/analysis Close Quote


by a parent
Tuesday, August 25, 2015

Open Quote Academically strong, but very few extracurricular activities. Kindergarten has 24 students in each class with NO assistants to help. Overall student-to-teacher ratio is much higher than what this site shows. High staff turnover each year. Can't hire a principal. School board and CEO have a "deal with it or take your kid elsewhere" attitude. Lacking facilities. Always having financial problems and use their charter status to justify the chaos that is constantly swirling at the school. 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.
