Open Quote Have very high concerns about the cell phone tower that is immediately across the street from school as well as the electrical substation that surrounds cell tower. Cell towers have been linked to brain cancer and children are more susceptible. Think twice before subjecting your child to the high radio frequency (RF) exposure and look elsewhere.

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.
