Open Quote Great school! Everyone is very involved and caring from the staff to teachers and principal. It also requires a lot of parent involvement especially with homework as children learn two languages at the same time. I am very happy with the school. Close Quote

Open Quote Beautiful looking school but unconcerned staff. Office staff and administration are so rude and unprofessional. Teachers have their preferences. My kid was being bullied and nobody cared. All they care about is fundraising. They expect a lot from you but do not address our concerns. Very disappointing! 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.
