Open Quote Excessive bullying that the school does nothing to prevent. They DO NOT watch the kids incidents occur in classrooms and designated supervised areas. My children were slapped, kicked, choked on several occasions which the teachers only said claimed they realized because the children brought it their attention and other children verified it. On one occasion my daughter was sexually exposed and mocked in the middle of a classroom by her peers all of which the teacher claimed to not see. Well what were you doing? They only care about money and will do anything to get it. Fundraisers are joke they promise kids prizes that they will not receive. Close Quote

Open Quote Staff and teachers are all amazing! They truly care about the well being of each child. My daughter got a small cut on the playground and after being sent to the school nurse to have it cleaned they called me to let me know. It was a small scratch. My daughter didn't even cry. But they cared enough to let me know. They keep me well informed on all events, cancellations, emergencies, fundraisers, field trips. They don't force and stress the children over the standardized testings like the public schools do. They care about each individual child more than their ratings given by the general public for their test scores. Thank God, because the amount of stress put on these young children today is unacceptable. And just to have a good school rating for popularity purposes. No school out there if perfect. But this one by far stands out the best. I have heard countless complaints from friends who have their children in the public schools. Yea, they look prettier and have prettier scores. But seriously, my child NEVER comes home stressed from pressure like the public school kids are. And she's excelling. She gets outdoor play. Daily. This is a no brainer. Close Quote

Open Quote The only complaint I have about this school is with the 6th grade Science teacher. My daughter has never been one of the kids to get in trouble and has always received good grades. This teacher is not very good and is really mean to the students. My daughter has talked to me numerous times about her and even was talking about wanting to change schools just over this one period she has. Teachers should never make a student feel that way. If there is a bully in the school I would say it is this teacher not the students. I am going to have my daughter bring her book home so I can teach her since her teacher clearly is not and is bullying her in class. I liked the school up until this point and my daughter loves her other teachers so I would say be warned of this lady if your kids are going in the 6th grade and make that extra effort at home to teach them.

Open Quote This is a great place for any student! It is quite challenging for their students. Close Quote

Open Quote We requested information on our child from the school. It took three months before we got any acknowledgment only after involving the Department of Education. Even after all of that, there has been no resolution. After speaking with the Principal, Deans and Assistant Principals, I doubt there will be any resolution without involving an attorney... all over a simple request that other schools take 3 days or less to process.

Good luck calling the office, there never appears to be anyone there to answer any questions or to even acknowledge the fact that I called. The condescending manner in which the office staff and principal treats parents and the amount of respect they demand out of parents is insanely unbalanced. The principal asks to be called Doctor as 'Principal' does not suffice however will shorten your name as if you were a student (i.e. James to Jimmy.) Her secretary responds to you if you were a Kindergardener: "Hun" and "Sweetie." Close Quote

Open Quote Terrible School. Terrible Administration. Staff is transient due to poor treatment from Corporate as well as in house administration. Student learning suffers greatly. 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.
