Open Quote I have 3 of my kids at Plessy and we love it. The teachers would all bend over backwards for their students. It's an open enrollment school (no lottery, or hand picking only the best students) so some students who are receiving their first good school experience have brought the scores down low. But those same students love school, and are learning in leaps and bounds. Close Quote

Open Quote Leadership at this school is drastically unqualified. They do not provide services that students need and are in no way, shape, or form doing the right thing for their students. Do NOT enroll your student at Plessy, no matter how great they make themselves look. Dig deeper, ask the tough questions, and pay attention to the red flags. Close Quote

Open Quote Leadership has lied to us many times about the discipline program, arts-integration program, special education program, pretty much everything. Many parents leave mid-year for this reason. 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.
