Open Quote We recently moved to this school's boundaries and weren't sure what to expect. We are pleasantly surprised. The faculty, staff, and administration were friendly and welcoming. Our kids are well supported and everyone has gone above and beyond to help our family through this transition. Close Quote

Open Quote The school was out of control under the last administration. DCPS kept one of the administrators that added to the horrible situation. The students, teachers, and parents were out of control. 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.
