Open Quote This school is terrible. The environment is so negative for students its ridiculous. The administration all have their heads in the sand and operate from fear. The only thing keeping this school alive is Noble - and i heard she is leaving because of the way other staff members treat her. She is one of the best human beings I've ever had the chance to meet. She goes above and beyond to create lifelong relationships with students. Students learn from her because she genuinely cares. She goes beyond the 'hello how are you' to learn about interests, struggles and lives. She is always getting shade from other teachers because students like her and its so sad to see that happen to such a great teacher. She is the most overlooked underrated staff there and should get a medal for all she does. She is the kind of person that makes a difference. She is the one that changes lives. 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.
