Open Quote My daughter just finished her last day as a 3rd grader at this school. She begged me to spend the day, I truly enjoyed myself. Up until recess time. First, all students, got to have a Popsicle and I thought that was awesome! It had to be at least 85 outside. ALL the teachers outside started eating a Popsicle there after. DID THEY OFFER ME ONE? NOPE! I kept looking at them ALL DEVOUR A POPSICLE WHICH HAD TO BE GOOD WITH IT BEING SO HOT OUTSIDE, BUT STILL NO OFFER. Then, I am taking pictures of my daughter, then a couple of the kids were acting like super stars asking me "Take one of ME!". I did! I showed them the picture and THEN I IMMEDIATELY DELETED IT.I understand about privacy matters, laws, ect. Some lady comes barking and gives me the third degree and told me that I need to put my my camera away and I should just put it away. She was so rude! She said in a threatening way that she was going to have to report it to the front. I said go ahead. Because I did take pictures and I deleted them as I said and I understand about privacy laws but I AM NOT GOING TO PUT MY CAMERA AWAY. MY DAUGHTER IS OUT HERE AND I AM TAKING PICTURES OF HER. She repeated "You can take pictures of your daughter but you cannot take pictures of any other children ." I guess I looked too stupid or ignorant to understand anything she just said since she was repeating herself again OR she wanted me to put my camera away in which case I have the right to have my camera out and take pictures of MY DAUGHTER. As we were being summoned to come in the Principal comes out to the play ground and meets me in the line where we were lined up to go inside. She basically said the same thing, I told her I did take the pictures, I deleted them, I understand there are privacy laws, and that other lady was being a real idiot to me about it. No, I did not use the word idiot, but! Her response was thank you and sorry for the other lady's bad behavior. Really? Is that other lady getting told, maybe approach people differently? One thing I notice about this school, I hate how everyone looks so unhappy.No one smiles, with the exception of a FEW teachers, EVERYONE looks so unhappy. We hated to transfer from New Highland. EVERYONE, WAS SO HAPPY there AND it showed! Close Quote

Open Quote This school is wonderful. It's more like a little family community rather than a school. I think it's wonderful that any child could walk though the hallways and there isn't a staff member there that does not know that child's name. When my child leaves each morning I know that she is going to a safe environment and that she is receiving a top notch education. 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.
