Open Quote Ghetto school, a lot of fights and bullying. The Principle's do absolutely nothing but suspend the kids and send them right back to school. Parent to Parent conferences for a mediation??? FORGET IT. They look at you as if you're wrong for wanting your child to be in a peaceful environment while learning. I had to withdraw my child due to bullying. This is a terrible school and I would not recommend this nightmare of a school to my worst enemy. Run, run away as far and as fast as you can. They don't care about these children and they tell lies and cover up what really goes on. Close Quote

Open Quote My child loves to learn. I love the fact that there is an after-school program as well a summer program. Even though these activities are strictly voluntary, I do commend the school for reaching out. It is up to us as parents to play a major role in our child’s education as well. 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.
