Open Quote I can't say enough about this school.My son loves it and so do we. I grew up attending private school from 3rd grade through high school and let me just say I could only wish that my private school were this good. Their insistance on the inclusion of art and music as part of the everyday curriculum should be commended. 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.
