Open Quote School has excellent performance, great musical departments, amazing amounts of clubs and special classes (eg. Creative Writing, Assistant Directors) and core classes are spectacular. Teachers progress at a speed which is both comfortable for the child and fast enough to help them finish their lessons. Dress code is well executed, hardly any behavioral problems. Professional-like school. I highly recommend it. 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.
