Open Quote I have nothing good to say about this school. My oldest daughter attended and I thought it was just horrible. They tell you they want communication between teachers and parents, but then they ignore your concerns. They were more concerned with the schools ranking rather then the education of the students. They handed out good grades to keep their rank up, not because the child knew the work. Getting good grades is very important and it is what every parents wants for their child. However what good does it do the children if they don't have the knowledge to back it up? All for the sake of the school and its numbers looking good down on paper. 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.
