Open Quote If you are looking for a good school, this is not it. The only good people are a few teachers (who are about to retire) and some of the cleaning staff. Rewards are on a individual bases and discipline is nonexistent. Try getting a meeting with the Principal and you will find she is busy most of the time and puts a lot of her responsibiliy on the FRC person ( who is wonderful ). The PTA has been awful. There seemed like hope for the PTA, with 3 parents trying their hardest in 2010. None of them came back for the 2011 year. We are trying to get transferred for the 2012/13 year. 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.
