Open Quote This 1st year for my 8th grader has not gone well. Teachers have repeatedly asked students to stay home from COVID after opening doors for face to face instruction. I’m very happy to be done here and for her to be going on to HS. Definitely would have bypassed HMS for another school had I known the levels of apathy at teacher level. Close Quote

Open Quote I really hated this middle School, one of the teachers goes to church and showed people a racist symbol on her forehead. She was also the Art teacher at the time I was in School back in 2007 or something of that nature. The Teachers there are Ignorant people that usually bullies other Teachers for the matter of Ethnic Values. They forced me to go to a Psychiatrist or these teachers have Threaten to Suspend me. I get it it’s. Public School but we have our concerns when it comes to certain issues. Students beat up students like is an Everyday thing. It’s like there no Authority but only hatred and ignorance around the School Campus. I regret going to this middle School and the students there are very very Discriminatory because I am Atheist. So, really I got scared because of the Bullies there. This School never changed for the better, it has gotten worse because of lack of fundings. Close Quote

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.
