Open Quote The school provides a great blend of diversity, both amongst the student population and amongst the teachers, exposing (and giving) all students a real world multi-cultural environment . Some parents, do complain about accents, but they also need to remind themselves of the world we live in. Spoken English varies from Seattle to Chicago to Boston to New York to Georgia to Alabama to England to Europe, and this school enables our kids this exposure. The faculty are extremely approachable and friendly, taking interest in supporting students any way they can, across all Sciences, English, Math to name a few. They are a great example for students themselves.
Student counsellors can do better by guiding students based on their career of choice, in helping fine tune course plans, selecting colleges,as early as beginning of sophomore year. Student teacher ratio also needs improvement, perhaps by adding more faculty-but I guess the Principal (Ms.Kersey) and the Board of education are to blame!
Encouraged by some of the wealth, it does appear students can act cliquish, while trying to show off materialism, by driving high end cars, wearing expensive branded clothes, etc. But I view this is a parenting issue, where values of respect and equality are not being shown to students by their parents. Students are children with a will to learn, and flexible to adapt, depending on the direction they are shown at home.

I am really glad to have chosen this area to live in, and am extremely proud to send my kids (now & future) to this school. As parents, let's unite, stop dividing based on race or accents or other personal motives, and make this school a much more enjoyable place for generations to come. 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.
