Open Quote We have our third child in this school and until this year we couldn't have been happier. The new principal has let some members of the staff bully and berate the students here (especially older kids). If you have to send your kids here the Kindergarten and 1st grade teachers are awesome, but move your kids somewhere else after that. Close Quote

Open Quote Great school for all types of learners. My son went from a low reader to being on grade level. He loves the teachers and the principal. The PTO is a fun group to be a part of. I would highly advise people to send their children to Stellar!! 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.
