Open Quote My son is a student there. It is a small school with a lot of parental involvement. To get to the school involves crossing a toll bridge ($6) . There are no city buses that go over to the island, which keeps it exclusive. Parents tend to be professionals or in the service industry. Kids are very nice. 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.
