Open Quote I don't know who rated this school but let me tell you what i've seen after traveling all over the world with the military...These are some of the best teachers & educators who are willing to go above and beyond for these kids. My daughters teacher made poodle skirts for their 50th day of school and celebrated the 50"s. they were amazing made out of felt. No one in all the years that i've had children in school. Ms. Heath is so talented as a teacher. Love Love Love the teaching ability of this school. They are strict but this is what it takes to have children excel. 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.
