Open Quote I am very impressed with the standards..my daughter is in pre-med and all the classes are so detailed,the teachers are so helpful by offering tutorials and are always an email away it gives parents such an ease of mind knowing they can find out whats going on even when their child does give any information.
The principal Mr Hatcher and his staff oversees his students affairs like an attentive father.He is caring,trust worth and protective,ensuring a safe and comfortable environment for learning.
My child's middle school years was a wonderful A-plus experience. 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.
