Open Quote This school is bursting from the seams! Overcrowding is a significant issue and the child/ teacher ratio is inaccurate..it's more like 26/1... Close Quote

Open Quote Based on my interactions with the school,this school is inviting, warm and caring. The administration is supportive and cares about our students. The teachers take time to teach each individual student. What is most rewarding is the school's focus on students excelling socially and academically. I LOVE this school! 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.
