Open Quote Yes I rated this school a 5. I wished my son could attend this school for the rest of his school life. Well yes I know it is an elementary school but a GREAT school. My son has done soo good in this school he has matained all A's and B's in his sadly to say last year of scholl there. He has loved every single teacher has had at this school.

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.
