Open Quote While this school is often portrayed to be a leading school as it features an IB program, it is poorly managed and definitely not a safe environment: unruly kids in classrooms with teachers who are overwhelmed and spend more time writing reports than teaching. If you can, take your kid elsewhere! 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.
