Open Quote This school is amazing! They can make magic with nothing. It's bilingual and their are a lot of immigrants. Not only Hispanics, but Norway, italy...these kids come from around the world! (my guess is they are the children of diplomats). My son loves it there. The teachers are great, the children are polite, and there is actual learning going on inside.

Only downside is that they do have those DUMB standardized tests. No one, including the teachers, like these tests. It is a shame. All of our children will be left behind with "No children left behind". 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.
