Open Quote Great change to the school this year! Dr. Giles has brought back school spirit, community, and pride to the school. Teachers and students feel valued again! The new LASSO structure is awesome and has helped so many students academically already and is an incentive for all students. Proud to live here and have my students go there. Don't believe any previous bad comments about the school. It has all changed now! 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.
