Open Quote I have no complaints on my child's teachers. So far they have been amazing. The office staff however are the snobbiest and rudest people I've met. They bully the parents and students themselves, so how can you ask them to stop a child from bullying??? The principal would rather tell you to go to the superintendent, than to try and solve problems herself. Not a way to lead others. There are so many first year teachers at this school and I know why. When your leader of the school acts the way she does, I'm sure it's hard to keep the good employees!!!! Close Quote

Open Quote You know your kid had a good year and a great teacher when he's so upset the year is over he's crying about missing his teacher! I'm so thankful for teachers like Mr. Dowen and that Alex had a great experience in 2nd grade! It just goes to show you what an impact a teacher can have on a kid, good or bad!
Cheers to you Mr.D! Close Quote

Open Quote My son attends this school, and he loves it. As a parent I am impressed as well. This school is like a hidden gem in our neighborhood. Teachers and staff have always been receptive to any questions or concerns I have had. We are fortunate to live in this neighborhood, and this school is a big part of the reason why. 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.
