Open Quote This past school year, 2011-2012, I had a child in 5th as well as in kindergarten. I would not be able to say enough about this school! For starters my kindergartener had an amazing teacher! They worked so hard for preparation for 1st grade and focused of reading and math as well as other things! My child was reading well beyond some first graders, I have no doubt that she will be more prepared for 1st than most children, including my older child when she went into 1st! My 5th grader, was in gifted, even though they changed the gifted program, she still excelled and even made STEM for 6th grade! Her teacher has been there for over 20 years and was very patient and knew exactly how to handle all the different personalities that 11year old boys and girls have. Our 5th grade banquet and ceremonies were perfect thanks to the help with the other parents and including the staff! Mr. Holley, our principle knew the regular parents that volunteed making us feel we were actually a part if the school! We were welcome to eat breakfast and lunch with our children, we had the option to volunteer as much as we wanted, as well as participate in field trips and school functions! Our music program was fun for the kids, it wasn't too controlling allowing the kids to excel in their true talents and actually made them more excited and willing to participate! This was a home for our kids, a safe haven! As sad as I am that I'm loosing a child to another school, I'm grateful that I have another one still attending!! This is the only school my children have attended and I'm grateful I had the chance to have my child start at one school and follow through till the end! Close Quote

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

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.
