Open Quote Academically this school is great. The school has an excellent Gifted Program. They offer plenty of extracurricular activities most paid by parents. All this barely makes up for: 1. huge teacher turnover - many experienced teacher leave the school every year and sometimes in the middle of the school year 2. weak leadership - parents' opinions don't matter 3. carline is a nightmare - school was built on a small lot with one entry/exit point yet has over 900 students 3. exclusive parents community - you must spend 24/7 at the school or be close to admins, otherwise they treat you like you're privileged to go to this school 4. school events are a logistical nightmare - not enough parking for award ceremonies and "bring parents to school" days. We've been at this school for 5 years and it's just getting worse. I will be looking for another school for middle school (Bell Creek is the same). If academics is all that matters to you, by all means pick this school. But if you want to keep your sanity and have a community school experience, avoid it if you can. 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.
