Open Quote Nearly 100% of it's students come from the lower socioeconomic neighborhoods surrounding the school. Some would think because of this there would behavior problems running rampant. But it's the opposite. These kids are excited about school. It's amazing to see that in such young children coming from rough homes. I think it's partly due to their new principal. She has just as much vigor as these students. I see nothing but great things in the future for this school. Keep it up! 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.
