Open Quote The do not have accommodations for people with disabilities. The elevators in the school are for staff use only. So if you are a disabled parent and your child's class is upstairs you will need to find someone else to take them. Also school has been in session for 6 weeks and they still have not figured out before care for working parents. 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.
