Open Quote We love this school. Such positive energy and caring staff. So happy the children are going to this school Close Quote

Open Quote Like any school, this school has its positives and it's negatives. Your child will either get a dynamite teacher who has the energy and desire to help their students succeed or he/she will get one of the teachers who are burnt out and should really consider retirement. For the most part the school seems to have decent teachers. The principal is a mixture of good and bad. I've never had an issue with her, however some parents aren't too pleased with her. My experience so far has been ok. My son seems to love the school and I've yet to experience any problems. 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.
