Open Quote My son has adhd and he has not received the help he needs from this school. The school went out of their way to knock on my aunts door to see if I lived there and when they found out I was no longer living at that address they said my child could no longer attend the school and gave me 2 days to change him to a different school. I'd love to take him out of this school and I've been trying and 2 days is not enough time due to my circumstances. They also have inappropriate books in school thay my son found in his classroom and showed his classmates yet he got in trouble because of it. I highly recommend you seek another school for your child. We have not had a good experience here. 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.
