Open Quote Although the teachers are good (some great), the administration is delusional. There is a horrible bullying problem and nothing is done about it. Issues must be escalated to the district-level. We know numerous parents who have left the school and many others who are desperately seeking to do so. We did not feel at all safe with our kids at this school and although some teachers are very dedicated, the overall environment is toxic and the horrible test scores mean that many teachers have to "teach down." When we transferred to a better school, they were far ahead of where this school was. 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.
