Open Quote I think the curriculum is very good. My son loves this school. People seem to judge the area that the school is located and I am not understanding why because there are kids from the poor to the poorest neighborhoods that become most successful. It may take a little longer however it does happen!!! 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.
