Open Quote This is the best school for any child! The teachers are amazing humans that care immensely about their students! They are great teachers and very caring. The principal also is just a wonderful human being and so is her whole staff. There's not another School in Georgia I would rather my children go to. I've had children there for 5 years now and they never disappoint. 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.
