Open Quote The expectations for students far exceeds what I thought should be offered to students. It is a gold mine. Close Quote

Open Quote This school is awful. My Son attended this school for 1st and second grade both teachers lacked patience just like the staff in the front office all the way up to the principle. Its a joke. We moved away from this school as fast as we could. If you can send you child to Sixes its a much better school and right around the corner. My son is going into third grade in a new school ( Cobb) starting on Thursday the 5th and we STILL HAVE not received our records that we requested over a month ago. A visit to the office today just confirmed the lazy and rude Staff at this school. I mean when you walk in and the lazy records worker is over 50 easily and wearing a birthday crown? I know its an elementary school but that is for the kids not the staff. Her excuse, I just haven't had the time. But you had time to hairspray that crown into your hair didn't you. Pathetic school because of the staff Good school ranking because the area it is in has great parents that do the staffs job in teaching the children. 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.
