Open Quote I have two kids that attend this school and I have only good things to say overall. The teachers are very dedicated and experienced. They are great and taught my boys so very much. The administration is wonderful and open to having meetings if problems ever arises. There are many opportunities to be involved as a student and parent. The robotics program is great and has the Cambridge name to back it up. There are problems of course as in any school but talk to the teachers or go to the office and they will direct you to the help you need. Close Quote

Open Quote This is a good school. Like anything, it can become better. Parents need to be more involved but the administration needs to do much more to bring in those parents in. Suggestions have been made over & over but no effort by administration ( only excuses ). The number of students have gone down. Teachers are very nice and do help the kids that want to be helped. So much they can do. In general, the Principal has the final word and sometimes she does not interact with the parents. The staff in the office has improved, finally got rid of wasted employees that did nothing other then being rude. Put that money into the kids. 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.
