Open Quote Hi the school does a wonderful job with teaching the students, they challenge them and encourage them to do better. If the kid is willing and wants to learn, he or she will do well at this school. Also, this school is great if your child needs speech therapy, not too many schools seem to offer this to students anymore. 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.
