Open Quote As a parent with a child here in 2018, I cannot say how ill the idea makes me that my son goes here. There is a SEVERE lack of attention paid to the children to help them grow, they "dumb down" the curriculum because most of the students are behind, so any child (like mine) that is advanced in any area is going to be bored, let down, and not challenged.

There are 4 other schools in the area I would rather have my son attend than this place. 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.
