Open Quote The teachers and staff are extremely caring and hard working. The students are getting a great education! The test scores are deceiving children get out of school what the parents put into it and them. We are pleased with the school overall. Close Quote

Open Quote Our girls started at Birney last year. Our youngest is in Pre-K Special Ed and her teacher is dynamite. She is loving yet firm with the kids. A nice healthy balance. She gets to know the students based on their strengths and teaches accordingly. She is available to meet to address any concerns. Our daughter also receives therapy (PT,OT and SPCH). I believe the therapist are equipped and personable. Our other daughter started Kindergarten last year and her teacher was dynamite as well. Very active with the students in curriculum and creativity. I spent a lot of time in her classroom volunteering and the students were well behaved and sharp.

Most of the staff I have met are friendly. I cannot say enough good things about the Principal. He seems to be very hands on and involved. 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.
