Open Quote School's reputation is diminished with the terrible leadership of Principal. Very unprofessional with parents and children. Dismiss bullying and sexual incidents. Parents have to hire education advocate attorneys' for IEP's because the school fights on granting needed services for children. School just cares about their "image"and "test scores" to be reviewed from the outside while the students' suffer with disliking their teacher as well as their Principal that does not put children's' safety and educational needs at any priority. School to involved in fundraising tactics for a new playground instead of investing in the child's education and safety/bullying policy. 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.
