Open Quote The school is not what it used to be. Teachers are leaving, good teachers! Teachers are not applying..still empty spots. The bullying within this school is horrendous and it is not addressed at all. It's brushed away! It's not what it advertises. 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.
