Open Quote BEWARE!!! The Principal lies and tries to ignore any parent complaints. He is beyond ignorant in the area of Special Needs Children, and enables a climate of bullying. Close Quote

Open Quote The front office staff are extremely unprofessional! I was absolutely appalled at the way they treated a kind young black mother in the office today. The principal should to teach them the value of compassion, respect and empathy. It should not matter the color of a persons skin, we are all human beings and should be treated as such.

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.
