Open Quote This school is not as bad as the reviews say. The faculty and staff are trying their best to make a positive change! They really just need to rid the school of the disrespectful children who don't care about learning. There are negatives about the school, but there is also good. Please consider going here.
Sincerly,
A student 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.
