Open Quote Great school, my children are very happy at ISPA, great teachers and great administration. Close Quote


by a parent
Friday, May 9, 2014

Open Quote This school is not what the administration advertises. Unfortunately, most of the teachers are mediocre to poor and the administration is not much better. There are a couple of exceptions in the foreign language areas (Spanish and French), and in English. The math and science areas are extremely deficient. This is especially true of a male teacher who teaches 9th grade Algebra and 10th grade Geometry. This individual continually sets up students to fail and appears to have a strong dislike for teenagers. I've complained to the administration and particularly the principal and nothing ever gets done. Other students and parents have had similar experiences, but their complaints end up in a black hole. Perhaps the School Board should investigate this further. My child is completing their sophomore year and the school overall has been a disappointment. Avoid this school at all cost! You will regret sending your child there. 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.
