Open Quote the principal doesn't work with you are your child. I also heard from other parents she is very rude and is not a good leader. The teachers are always away at staff meetings or some type of training. This school is going downhill for sure if they dont get a better leader and teachers. 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.
