Open Quote What really makes this school special is the arts integration model that is used to drive the curriculum. The arts pervade all instruction, and results in an engaged student body that is ready to tackle whatever challenges the faculty might throw. The talented faculty is a mix of savvy veteran teachers and enthusiastic younger teachers. My only real complaints are that the classes are too strongly tracked and that a few bad eggs are allowed to linger, coddled by the city administration and their parents. 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.
