Open Quote This school misidentifies native English speakers as ELL. At least two Kindergarten students misidentified and labelled. Close Quote

Open Quote After doing a lot of research, I decided to move within this school district for the only reason of wanting my son to attend this school. It was WELL worth it! This elementary school is amazing and I have been nothing short of thrilled with every aspect of this school (from the teachers, to parent involvement, expectations, testing, etc.). This elem. school functions very similarly to a private school but with the "hometown feel" added. Love this school. You won't be disappointed! 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.
