Open Quote The teachers Kindergarten, First and second GRade so far are very good, very dedicated, I know this because I am a parent of 2 kids and go almost everyday to help as volunteer in the school. The school has a New principal now, He seems nice and with a lot of new and good ideas to help the school. I am very happy with this school! 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.
