Open Quote Great school! Teachers are always willing to work with kids and parents,to make sure they are meeting their goals. Lots of fun activities outside the classroom, very well rounded. Great parent and community involvement. Principal is fantastic, which is why the teachers are happy here. PE teacher is very involved with getting the kids running! Great after school and summer program too. Close Quote

Open Quote We've watched the quality of this school slide downhill fast in the past 2 years. The staff was incompetent, and they were defensive and argumentative when we raised concerns about our child's needs not being met. They retaliated against us and our son when we refused to accept the unacceptable. 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.
