Open Quote My oldest son went there about 15 years ago and it was the best school ever other than a few over the top snotty women who worked there. Now my younger children go there and it has the worst staff you could ever imagine they're there simply to get a paycheck not to teach your children they're very rude and inconsiderate they think everybody should stop what they're doing and be on their schedule and fork out every bit of money to them and if you don't then you're not like them to school. They do not have the child interest at heart at all it's all about what they can do for them to make them look better. There is one or two teachers there that are even worth having. Close Quote

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

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.
