Open Quote I am so pleased with the education and special services my children are receiving at this school. After changing from a small, private school out of state, I am shocked at the kind of resources available to the students. They have several resource teachers for library, research, computers, art, music, writing, science and more. Kids who need extra help receive it, whether it be speech therapy, reading tutoring, or a little extra challenge from the GT Program (Gifted and Talented). This school also focuses on character building and personal responsibility. The GLO standards let you know exactly what the children will be graded on and they have several opportunities to practice and receive feedback before receiving final grades each quarter. There are about 7 classes per grade with an average of 21 students per class. I think that is a decent class size at any school and from what I've seen the teachers manage the students very well with the classrooms being quiet and orderly. I do feel that the school could benefit from more playground equipment and an "anti-bullying" program. There seems to be a lot of teasing which is not explicitly racist, however it seems to target Caucasians. Close Quote

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

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.
