Open Quote This is a great school with students from 24 countries speaking multiple languages. The faculty is caring and the students respect each other. The reason the scoring is so low is because of the way the state calculates testing. We have many students that are new immigrants to this country. Everyone has to take the math tests because math is a universal language. Not true, when almost all questions are two stage word problems. You have to be proficient in English to understand the questions. 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.
