Open Quote Parents Beware!! check the scores of your home school prior to enrolling your child. Our neighborhood school had a much better rating compared to SSCharter School. as they say Buyer Beware. I went by word of mouth. My friends sent their children here so I did too. turns out that the PUBLIC schools in our neighborhood are superior to SSCHARTER. I could have saved 30 minutes per day (commute to Norwell) had my children attended the school down the street. Our children now go to the neighborhood school. They are much happier. They now have friends from OUR neighborhood! 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.
