Open Quote If you feel lucky your child got a seat in this school, don't be fooled. This school doesn't have wait-list and never had. Almost 2 dozen employees and 5 dozen students left during this school year. Many classes went through number of teacher. The curriculum is a joke! Not even comparable to public schools. Brand new school changing the logo two years into school opening because they are all about money. Close Quote

Open Quote Great school in 2017-2018. The 2018-2019 school year has been a joke. Would not recommend this school to my worst enemy. 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.
