Open Quote This is my second year I have a 1st grader and kindergarten, my experience has been great so far, my daughter learned how to read in kindergarten and got a 99 score on SAT practice test on 1st grade. Close Quote

Open Quote I would give it a 0 rating if I could. One of the worse experiences of my child's life and mine. My child was bullied and targeted by a teacher and when I complained all hell broke loose. The harassment worsened and and now it included me as well. The principal? Absolutely useless. Run for the hills! 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.
