Open Quote It's a great school if you want your child bullied, unjustly restrained and suspended for defending their self. All separate events all different children I have several students attending this school. Also be prepared to have your child trimmed in the restroom as well as refused to use the restroom during class time or they are punished. 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.
