Open Quote This school is still adjusting to a new principal, and I think over the next few years it will improve. As of now, I would not recommend this school. Drugs, violence, academically poor, few teachers or administrators that care about the students. Maybe one day, but not today. 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.
