Open Quote Terrible school, teachers do not care whatsoever. No communication from any one at the school. I send multiple emails that go unanswered. Don’t get me started on the bullying… seems like it’s encouraged! Close Quote

Open Quote Stay away from this school. They tolerate bullying, aftercare staff are immature and disrespectful to kids and parents and that is tolerated as well. I should have never enrolled my child in a school that was founded by a rapper by the name of Pitbull. That says it all about this school. Take my advice and run as fast as you can away from this school. 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.
