Open Quote The principal and the assistant principal are very dismissive towards issues with African American students. The white teachers play both sides and they don’t have the supporting staff in the classrooms to control the kids. Extremely racist and I do not suggest dealing with these people or school. Our family has had more than 5 incidents and the school year isn’t a over. African American students are being physically assaulted with no real recourse for the white students. PLEASE AVOID!!

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.
