Open Quote I have two children attending this school and am very pleased with the Principal and his leadership. He has created an inclusive environment where children can learn, feel protected, and excel. I would rate the majority of teachers in the school as 'excellent' and a few I've encountered as 'very good.' The class sizes for my children's grades is amazing- each child gets the attention he needs. 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.
