Open Quote The school is now over 800 students. In my opinion the school needs to work harder on communication and center on empathy. The principal and some of the admin are very insolent and irreverent in my experience and to parents I've spoken with. Would like to see district put a principal and admin in this school that has an IB educational background. Unfortunately, it's Florida so you get what we vote into office. Close Quote

Open Quote I have been attempting to visit my scholars classroom and have been shut down multiple times which makes me wonder. I emailed administrator and never received direct contact from them. This school makes me very unwelcomed and is not what expected. I am considering to reenroll my scholar into his previous zoned school. The teacher is not pleasant to deal with and instead of the principal emailing me, she tells the teacher to respond on her behalf. This is so impersonal. 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.
