Open Quote To add this school does not have homework. Which is a great thing since now we have more time for extra curricular activities and family time. School lets out close to 4pm. Close Quote

Open Quote I agree with a previous parent - I'm not sure what the teachers here actually do, it certainly doesn't seem to be teaching. I have two kids in school here (and I'm hoping more than anything they get into a school choice slot elsewhere!), neither one brings home any homework to do. Communication is very poor with most people at the school. Continually asking for "fundraising" donations and classroom "donation" of items, this school should give me money to pay for the tutors my kids will need in order to be ready for higher grades!!

Open Quote No homework even for kids in higher grades. Teachers don't teach anything, relying on videos created by someone outside school. This place is not a school, but a daycare. 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.
