Open Quote This is a terrible place to be! I am a former teacher at the school and there were countless number of parents who were mortified to find that the students are not getting the help they deserved. This is only part of the problem. Accomodations for students are changed and parents are not notified. They are pulled from and miss out on important classes to drill in areas that will be tested by the state. The principal is a tyrant who runs the school how she sees fit without regard for who it hurts. There is not much hope for the school until she is out! Test scores are low and bullying is up! Stay away if you can help it. 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.
