Open Quote This is an awesome school..... with some of the best teachers!! Our son went here 7th and 8th grade. One of the nicest things is the grades are split up by hallways.... you have 6th grade hallway in one, 7th grade in another and 8th grade in another. Its almost like 3 separate schools in one!

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.
