Open Quote No attention given to special needs children. Class sizes to big, teachers very judgmental, and not friendly at all. Don't bring your children here, there are so many children here they don't monitor properly, my firstgrader had a child spit in her mouth and nothing was done... this school is terrible!!!!

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.
